With ISPs and streaming services beset with a higher load thanks to millions of Australians either unemployed, in self-isolation or working from home, services are under a lot of stress right now. So the Communications Minister reportedly has a great idea: send less data.
Remember that horrible NBN Co idea to “differentiate video traffic” and basically put net neutrality up for debate in Australia? It’s properly dead, with NBN Co proposing to increase the data inclusions within the connectivity virtual circuit charges.
Days after taking to YouTube with an ad marking the halfway point of the national broadband network rollout, and not long after we cheekily pointed out the speedtest result in the ad, NBN Co has pulled their own ad.
