  4. David says:

    Say no to 5G. Phones are already $1000. ISPs haven't complied with the 1996 telecom act. Wireless is bad in non-populated areas. Broadband is horrible almost everywhere.

    #LoveFromAustralia From 21:49 I laughed so hard my co-workers came into my office to see what was wrong with me.

  29. Frosty. says:

    the 5g thing is seems like an obvious trick.. if they actually try to nationalize it, they are just going to "fail" and then pay the ISPs to "fix" it for them and it will end up falling into their hands at the end

    Or they just won't actually build it, but still take the money. Like they did half a dozen times before
