Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been spruiking coalition broadband policy this month. A core point, he says, is that there are no applications for National Broadband Network (NBN) speeds of 100 megabits per second (Mbps). Is he right?
One of the strangest arguments against the NBN is that it's going to raise the price of broadband access. What those spouting this argument don't seem to realise is that next-generation access prices won't be any cheaper — and if Telstra has its way, it will make NBN Co's pricing look like loose change while killing VoIP, IPTV and "naked" services.
National broadband provider iiNet has responded to comments by Telstra that consumer-grade Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony isn't yet reliable enough for use by pointing out that it has 170,000 customers using the technology — and they're very happy, thank you very much.
Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull last night said that National Broadband Network (NBN) enthusiasts need to demonstrate what applications will actually need the fibre network's massively enhanced speeds, telling futurist Mark Pesce that he should "lay off the Kool-Aid" with respect to the technology.

The National Broadband Network's connection speeds of 100 megabits per second and more are essential for new health and education applications, according to Dr Terry Percival, director of NICTA's Neville Roach Laboratory.

Like millions of other Americans and many of New York City's "bridge and tunnel" crowd, I live in the 'burbs. While I do a great deal of travel for my full time job, I am also classified as a "mobile" employee, so I'm not formally attached to an office -- I've been issued a company laptop and they pay my monthly broadband, cellular and phone bills, which are in the form of an AT&T Callvantage VOIP account.
I was checking out TUAW this morning and saw that a very cool VoIP application is under development for the Apple iPhone. This is not an application for jailbroken phones, but for iPhones that have been upgraded to the latest firmware supporting 3rd party applications. What makes this VoIP application particularly powerful is the ability to transfer a cellular call to WiFi during the call as shown in the YouTube video below. iCall seems to work quite well and will definitely be one of the first applications I plan to look for when the iPhone application store is launched.
