There has been much noise and speculation going on surrounding the advent of next generation of broadband technology. The fibre optic broadband is here and bound to offer people with internet speeds as never before seen. But then at the same time, there have been many doubts over the promise as made by the government and if it has potently delivered.
A heavy investment of as much as $1.5 billion was made by the government assuring people of giving them access to ultra fast broadband speeds in the coming times. The question remains, are the people being cheated. A large portion of the tax payer’s money is given to Telecom. Apart from this, as much as $300 million worth of Rural Broadband Initiative money has been given to Telecom-Vodafone duopoly.
The National ultra fast broadband scheme seemed much promising and genuinely benefitting the people back then.
Today there is actually a fear that the common people might just end up with overcharged rates and under satisfactory services. At the heart of it, this so called super fast internet is rather being given to the cities and throbbing areas of the country. On the other hand the remote and small villages have to make do with meager speeds that are much pitiable.
The cities see for as much as $40 per monthly, wholesale delivering 30Mbps download speeds and 10Mbps upload speeds. Then there are the rural areas getting a poor 5Mbps. This figure is for eighty percent of the village households. The remaining ones get an even more slower1Mbps.
