There’s been a bit of hubbub recently about the NBN because the Coalition just came up with their grand scheme to counter the sputtering ALP version. Rather than bother reading through shitloads of dickheads talking about how fast their Game Of Thrones and porn fetish video download speeds are, I thought I’d just compare some theoretical maximum download figures of various internets.

Sigbritt Löthberg: 40Gbps
Japan’s new internet: 2Gbps
Singapore’s NBN since 2010: 1Gbps
Australia proposed/stalling NBN soon to be ready in 2021: 1Gbps
Coalition’s proposed NBN ready much faster in 2019: 100Mbps

You probably read this before I typed it because I live in a land down under.
