Nah, I agree there.  Totally.  I admit I'm being selfish.  I'm not a
politician either, so it's not my role ;)

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I sync at 7 :)  And that, at times,
I can get that in actual throughput.  I know nothing is guaranteed, but
reasonable expectation also applies here.

And yes, I actually totally agree with you on your suggestion.

It raises the question from me though -- will this monopoly-on-backhaul
situation even be fixed by the NBN? (Excuse my ignorance there).
