OPEL Contract Tawn Up

Optus and Elders, which formed the joint OPEL venture, have been notified by the federal government that their regional broadband contract has been terminated.

Thanks Mr Conroy, no ADSL2+ for me. Now I have to wait for whoever builds this new National Broadband Network and if it’s Telstra I’ll send you my excess bill. I’m sure it will be a rip-off if they build it.
