What do you consider to be innovation?
Haven't VoIP, non-telstra ADSL and ADSL2+, alternative backhaul to
Telstra, constantly increasing quotas, unmetered content,
offpeak/onpeak quotas, multiple attempts at video on demand/IPTV,
multiple attempts at unlimited Internet, FTTH deployments in new
residential establishments, and multiple Wimax network deployments,
which have all occurred in the last 10 years, been innovations?
