MyRepublic details Australian launch, disses “shit network” NBN

David Ramli at the SMH has been talking to MyRepublic, a Singaporean ISP launching services here in mid-2016. They’re certainly not backward in coming forward about what they think of the NBN (sorry, nbn™):

“I don’t know what [the government] is doing on the other policy fronts but on this they’ve completely stuffed it,” he said. “More and more Australians will leave the country looking for jobs and you’ll continue to be a resource based economy – the hope of building IT jobs and a digital economy will kind of be more difficult to achieve.

“On FTTN we’ll market 100Mbps and when people come over we’ll say ‘sorry, thank your government [because] you’re on a shit network and the most you can get is 20-30Mbps, but we will continue to lobby your government to turn it into a fibre-to-the-home one and as soon as you get there we’ll get you a free upgrade to fibre’.”
