3rd world telecommunications in Australia

It is very annoying to live in an allegedly civilized and technically advanced society only to find out that one is unable to get access to broadband services since the phone lines here are pair gain.

I live in a major city in Australia, just one of the outer suburbs – not in a remote rural area – this is crazy!

They have offered me satellite at a ludicrously high price and wondered why I refused.

How can we be the clever country if we still have to use 56k dial up?
