[AusNOG] Building manager refuses entry to MDF

No experience, but this doesn't sound right. The building manager's view
and body corporate, presumably, is that the MDF is private property on
private property. I think this is wrong headed. The function of the MDF is
to provide a utility, and restricting access to supply looks like monopoly

Of course you can bill the body corporate, and see how they react.

The people whose preserve this is is the ACCC. I'd write them (not call) a
letter, who knows, they may take a view which they're prepared to enforce.

Kind regards

Paul Wilkins
