UFB AND BUSINESS
Lately the business community seems to make a lot of noises about allegedly being deprived of opportunities to do business faster, for not getting any time soon, ultra fast broadband.
I don’t claim to be original in saying that for some time we are in an age of acceleration! To what end?
To stop thinking clearly in my view!
Why do you think so many folks are keen to escape to New Zealand?
Definitely not for being able to pocket their dollars faster. But before I should get too philosophical, here is my point for today.
For you and me retired people or not (families on high renting for example), that kind of broadband would mean a more expansive landline connection, as the copper wired connection would go, and older telephones might not even work.
Spark soon will switch to a system when ordinary telephones would no longer work in times of power outages.
To sum it up. If we common folk supported UFB, we basically would subsidise business; which I object to. Telephones like the post service are here for the service of the people!
