Woohooo!

I love the way they assume that “Copper” is not fast enough for broadband …
Australia deems broadband to be any communications technology faster than dialup … and still offers 256Kb/s “broadband” plans.

Some “unlimited” plans cap users at 64Kb/s after they reach their “unlimited” GB data download limit.
