I would post this on Whirlpool. But I don't post there. I have my reasons. Enough said.
I want to put forward what to me is a dynamite argument for Labor's original 93% FTTP plan and against the current LNP MTM mess. I'd never realised until today that high schools are also a part of the internet plans. Let me explain with some examples.
If you go to Mt Eliza Secondary College on the My NBN site [one by Jxeeno] you will see that brownfields FTTP is planned by late April. However if you go to Mornington Secondary College you will see FTTN as the planned technology. Hence my point is this: surely this is a digital divide of the absolute worst possible kind. Thus what someone should do is to get a list of all of the government secondary schools in Australia and make a list of the % of them that are slated under the MTM to get what technology. As a 40 years young person I am too shithouse with computers to be able to do this. But someone else should be able to do it.
Then surely that would be one hell of a list for this year's election campaign. I mean, you are going to give some people whose whole lives are technological [ I've seen 2 year olds using ipads skilfully] the better technology and others get inferior technology?? Of course this is somewhat simplistic in that schools could get funding for their internet from various sources. Nonetheless at face value this is one heck of a disgraceful digital divide that should be researched. It would be interesting for instance if any schools were not on the internet rollout at all.
So I think that this research would be worth doing.
