MyBroadband gets an 'F' for fail

The MyBroadband website promises a snapshot of the true state of broadband in Australia but reads more like a love note to HFC technology.

The Minister for Communications Malcolm Turnbull provided one of the missing pieces of information in the NBN debate this month with the release of the complete Broadband Availability and Quality Report 2013 and the launch of the Department of Communications MyBroadband website.

The MyBroadband overview states “to assist with the prioritisation of under-served areas, the Government asked the Department of Communications to undertake an analysis of broadband availability and quality in all areas of Australia.”
