daria42 (866794) writes "Think the media's bad in your country? Spare a thought for Australia, where much of the conservative media is against the Australian Government's decision to deploy universal fibre broadband around the country to deliver 93% of Australians speeds of 1Gbps. Yup, you read correctly. There are media outlets staunchly against this plan. This week the country's Communications Minister Stephen Conroy was forced to step in to defend a journalist who has been pointing out that the Government's fibre broadband plan was fundamentally better technically than a much more limited plan being pushed by the Opposition."
