Goodbye, net neutrality, we hardly knew ye.

Justin Milne, managing group director of Telstra-owned Bigpond (Australia’s largest ISP), has made his feelings clear on net neutrality. If you want to be a web host with high traffic running on our ISP, then you can darn well pay for it.

“I think that’s a ride that’s coming to an end,” he said. “It’s based on free traffic where the guys who are running the highways are going to come after their money as well.”

Telecommunications carriers “have got to keep building out these networks so that other people can shunt their content around and we don’t make any money from it”, Mr Milne said. Oh, you poor things. And they’re the ones who charge more than pretty much every other major Australian ISP, too.

    I put some funny Dirkjan comics on it and half of them are without text so totally intelligible!
    If you don’t like them you have no sense of humour at all πŸ˜‰

    You like? πŸ˜‰

  4. jivlain Says:

    I don’t remember saying anything of the sort. Besides, haven’t you shown those to me before?

    How can you NOT like them?:O Yeah I showed you some before, but those I had to translate. These are textless πŸ™‚ A friend of mine borrowed me three of his albums (alba ;)) which I read in the train for 3 hours long. 10% of the time I was giggling having people looking at me all the time πŸ˜›

    Is it possible your puny uplink was only able to show the first picture of every comic? πŸ˜‰
