The australian elections have finished and the winning party has announced a new broardband network. Supposively its a 100 megabits fibreoptic network with direct link(s)? to the USA.

Im wondering how this proposed network will affect pings ingame, currently i recieve 200 - 300 ms depending on time of day and background dls. Clarification to the network's impact would be much apreciated!

100 megabits is pushing it way too far I reckon. They say 93% of Australia will get that and 7% will get 12 megabits..

I don't have any lag problems with LoL at all anyway (and im Aussie).

But yes this Broadband thing is good.

And we don't have to have Tony Abbot as PM. Double bonus.

We do have a ginger PM though, so not getting too excited.

They'll need to disable "the great firewall of China" before much progresses in Australia tbh.

This project sounds expensive, but I believe it's necessary; for a while now, Australians have been forced to endure significantly greater connection issues than people living in other parts of the world due to their distance from the United states and Europe.

Won't happen..3 years from now. New government, they'll change it.

10 years from now we'll still be an internet backwater when the higher ranking internet nations have 1gb+ connections and our NBN is being sold off and then resold to us at 10 times the price everyone thought it would be.

How can someone get 400k more votes and lose the election..its ridiculous. Democracy my arse, the whole thing came down to 3 geriatrics who were only in it to get as much as they could out of Labor/Libs.

Lesser of two evils.

Anyone who thinks Abbot is a competent politician fails. People say he had a great campaign because he managed to avoid failing as hard as anticipated. Mediocrity =/= good.

I voted Gillard because she had the balls to come out as an atheist in a country full of religious bogans.
