  • Illawarra Labor Party: Who cares about the election, I want the seat! | James Purser
    parachuting was as a result of a deal between the left and right factions of the Labor party which gave the right access to certain seats in exchange for the left to have control over Throsby That deal now appears to have been put aside as the NSW head office controlled by the right faction has declared that Throsby is now to be pre selected by the actual rank and file A win for grass roots democracy one might say On the face of it yes However that win looks a little less shiny if this story is to be believed The state member for Wollongong Noreen Hay is the acknowledged right faction leader in Wollongong and she has been campaigning hard to get Jones knocked out of the seat ever since he was announced as the candidate She has also long been a controversial character in the region barely scraping in at the last state election against former priest and current Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbury she dropped from a very comfortable lead of 25 to 2 You d think with a margin of 2 Noreen would be focusing on her electorate building up her support amongst the voters and

  • Joe Hockey: 4G potential to be far superior to fibre | James Purser
    money convenience nearness of availability deployment and many of the numerous other attributes that a consumer might consider when weighing these alternatives Basically I think Joe is arguing that because it s available now in certain areas certainly not universally available it has the edge of fibre which is going to take several years to roll out That isn t superior that s convenient Joe then goes onto explain how convenient wireless is Wireless technology additionally offers mobility portability and convenience for the end user Many Australian consumers such as tenants or others not willing to sign long contracts and pay installation costs may for these reasons choose wireless broadband ahead of fixed line technology Whis is fine as far as it goes However wireless also has its downside It is far more affected by weather events than fibre or even copper it does not and really cannnot have the same capacity as fibre the capacity of a 4G node would be dwarfed by a fibre node Honestly I stopped listening to the Coalition on Broadband policy a long time ago Mainly because I do have some clue of what they re trying to talk about and every single time they try to go technical it sets my teeth on edge This bit is rich though The Coalition has long recognised that no single broadband technology suits all consumers and all areas of the nation We also recognise that for many consumers broadband and wireless will be complementary whereas for others they may well be direct substitutes as noted above This is why the Coalition advocates a technology agnostic approach to upgrading broadband Our broadband policy will rely on a mix of technologies to provide broadband to Australian households and businesses as soon as possible at affordable prices and at
