5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Federal independent MP Tony Windsor has delivered a serve to NewsCorp for what he’s labelled a “scare campaign” against the National Broadband Network (NBN).

Speaking to rural newspaper The Land, Windsor said the Murdoch media giant “has to be reminded from time to time that they are not the government”.

Last week, visiting the regional town of Armidale in NSW – an early NBN release site, and coincidentally in the electorate represented by Tony Windsor – Communications Minister Stephen Conroy said that the first area to be NBN-connected in that town had recorded a sign-on rate of more than 87 per cent.

This apparently bears out Windsor’s claim that “country people are hungry [for the NBN]”. ®
