World's richest man slams Labour's NBN as too expensive

Discussion in 'Computing' started by Dr Sir John Howard, AC, WSCMoF, Sep 29, 2010.

    The world’s richest man, Mexican telecom and media tycoon Carlos Slim Helu, says
    Australia is paying too much for its proposed national broadband network.

    ‘‘It’s too much money,’’ Mr Slim told the Forbes Globes CEO Conference in Sydney
    today.

    ‘‘It’s just not necessary to spend so much money because technology is changing
    all the time.’’

    Mr Slim made the comments after he was awarded the Malcolm S Forbes Lifetime
    Achievement award, which honoured his achievements for entrepreneurial capitalism.

    The federal government plans to roll out the NBN, a high-speed fibre optic cable
    network, across Australia at a cost of up to $43 billion.

    Mr Slim queried the fibre optic technology on which the NBN would be based.

    ‘‘You need to have a multi-platform of everything; mobile, landline, fibre,
    cable and copper,’’ he said.

    Mr Slim is worth about $US53.5 billion ($55.3 billion), according to the Forbes
    rich list, and controls Mexican companies Telmex and Telnor, construction
    conglomerate Impulsora del Desarrollo y el Empleo and has a stake in The New
    York Times.

    In a wide-ranging discussion with Forbes chief executive Stephen Forbes, Mr Slim
    told delegates the ultimate way to fight poverty was through job creation, not
    charity.

    ‘‘Trillions of dollars have been given to charity in the last 50 years, and they
    dont solve anything,’’ he said.

    is not a qualification.
    ...the attitude that prevented private enterprise doing it for
    TEN YEARS of Lying Lieberal inaction! B^p


    Wow.. this nong doesn't believe in Fibre optic technology!

    BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA

    That's what the NBN will be. He's obviously a bigger fucking idiot
    than John Howard, (any version) B^D


    About as much sense as his views on letting people starve:


    ---------


    "Last week, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott reneged
    on a deal on voting rights..
    Mr Abbott again defended his decision to break the deal"

    - SMH 28/9/2010

    "Tony Abbott and his wife Margie,
    ...set aside their differences and prayed for
    mutual trust, kindness and love."

    - The Australian 28/9/2010


    Tony Abbott, Economic Management - FAIL:




    Tony Abbott. telling the truth - Fail:



    ---------


    "The coalition won more votes and more seats than
    our opponents but sadly we did not get the
    opportunity to form a government,'
    - Tony Abbott, betraying truth and integrity.


    Why is Tony Abbott such a LIAR and DREADFULLY BAD LOSER?

    He can't accept that Gillard WON, and instead the
    dishonest little grub is trying to claim the government
    is NOT Legitimate! 8^o He does this by blatantly LYING
    that he got the majority of seats and the majority
    of votes!

    If the pathetic fraud got the majority of seats he would
    be sworn in as the New Government. He isn't because he DIDN'T!

    If the Government is constitutionally Illegitimate, then why
    hasn't he taken legal action? The answer is, he's a filthy LIAR!
    and the Lieberals, falsely maligning the legitimacy
    of our democracy are tantamount to TREASON

    B^D Tony Abbott is back to the REAL Tony! B^[

    And he did NOT get the majority of votes, the ALP did:


    Votes Percentage %
    Australian Labor Party 6,216,445 50.12
    Liberal/National Coalition 6,185,919 49.88

    Conry tries deflect criticism with "Mr Slim has clearly not read the
    implementation study and we will forward him a copy"

    I'm sure it will be put to good use, just so lng as the sheets are
    perforated and theres a hole for some string.
