News Limited Internet

So I was reading whirlpool today, I don't read the forums, and only skim their articles. It's the little sidebar of interesting internet related news articles that I go there for.

I found this gem:
Telstra is willing to invest more than $4 billion of its own money in a FTTN network.

We are ready, starting within days to dig the trenches, lay the cables, connect the fibres, light up the network and change the way Australian families and businesses communicate with each other and with the world.

Telstra can raise the money immediately so financing for us is not an issue.

It would be an open access network, available to our competitors at a price reflecting the cost of the network and a competitive return for the Telstra shareholders who are risking their money to build it.
-- A phantom to create an illusion - Telstra CFO John Stanhope

Wow. Just wow. Telstra's plan has been behind closed doors for a long time now. The best figures I've seen, that actually give specifics, put the monthly cost of a 512kbit internet service at $80. Over $100 for real broadband.

Today, you can get faster, cheaper, internet using ADSL2+ from a non-telstra provider. This is a clear indication that either someone is slandering Telstra by saying their costs to the consumer are too high (likely), and/or Telstra is going screw us (certain).

Telstra is saying it would be an open network. Telstra is also blocking the network from going ahead until the ACCC is banned from ever telling Telstra that they are charging too much. The conclusion I am forced to draw is that Telstra is going to be charging as much as the market can possibly pay.

I'm sorry John. Take your anticompetitive bullshit and stick it.
