Wait, people actually have to make that choice? The NBN really must suck.
Yeah, there are times that my internet plays up and 720p doesn't stream consistently because Youtube wont let me pause and buffer anymore. Thankfully it's better than that 90% of the time tho.

reading between the lines what I think he was thinking was "we know that gamers are responsible for murdering American school kids so why not blame them for our nbn fail" oh did I say that out loud, my bad :)

It reeks of political opportunism, finding a convenient scapegoat that's superficially plausible and demographically segregated. No-one is going to come out and say "y'all watch too much Netflix" because that's seem as legitimate use of the internet while gaming is (perceived) as a waste of time. Streaming media would be a failure one their account to provide a reliable service, while blaming gamers allows the blame to be on a few bad eggs running for everyone with their frivolous entertainment pursuits.

The clarification was a nice use of weasel words, taking away from the patently false claim that it's gaming, but leaving open the blame on people who olay games as being bandwidth hogs in other respects.

I said it before and I'll say it again, blaming gamers is the Australian BS pollie's equivalent of blaming Mexicans for all the problems in the US. Those bloody gamers are taking all our bandwidth. NBN Fearmongering.

As per Makena's post...

Shit, they found out we were lying... who to blame next? Well movie streaming is the real culprit but we can't blame Stan and piss off old mate Rupert... let's throw Netflix under the bus, they don't give us money.

Currently using my mobile as a wifi hotspot (and getting some value out of my 13Gb per month that I don't come close to using).

Exetel NBN still not working. We think it's a NBN hardware fault. Got a WP thread going here:

Not that I can tell. My $60/mth hasn't been direct debited.

NBN Co tech came on Monday and found that the wrong address had been connected.

They supposedly fixed it up but there's still no internet. At this rate, I have no idea when I will be connected. Might have to get a wireless 4G solution in the interim.
