TPG's announcement of offering fibre-to-the-building broadband services will be the first test of new Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Millennials were raised on technology -- they never had to be taught. So if you really need someone to explain what it all really means, just ask Gen-Y geek Josh Taylor, and he'll blog about it (whenever he feels like it).
Armed with a degree in Computer Science and a Masters in Journalism, Josh keeps a close eye on the telecommunications industry, the National Broadband Network, and all the goings on in government IT.
I admire the enthusiasm of people signing a petition to save the fibre-to-the-premises NBN, but it's unlikely to go anywhere.
After three years of opposing and criticising the NBN project, it's now the problem of incoming Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull was forced to defend an opt-out internet filtering policy he'd only heard about minutes before going on radio.

It is not really surprising that internet filtering plans in the UK would bring the pro-filter people back out in Australia.
