Submission + - Australian Government pushes for Fibre To The Node (smh.com.au)

An anonymous reader writes: After kicking the incumbent, previously Goverment branch, telco out of the bidding process because they didn't get their act together, the Australian government has rejected all of the bids from the exisiting commercial companies to provide a national broadband backbone and instead has decided to invest AUD$43billion in a new company to build and provide services to customers. Providing fibre to the node will pose a very real threat to the incumbent (Telstra) telco that owns all of the copper but the best is yet to come: if Telstra move to try and delay or scupper this effort, the Government is willing to fix the legislation in their favour! woooo! Now why can't Obama take a leaf out of this book and do something similar for the USA?
