have browser, will travel

Yesterday, Wesley Felter's Hack the Planet had great content and links about @Home's bullshit ONadvantage policy. As an @Home subscriber, I'm not at all surprised that they would pull this kind of crap, but it offends me nonetheless.

I do realize they have to protect their bandwidth, but trying to pull the covers over our eyes like this makes me angrier than I would have have been if they had explained their decision in public.

Apparently, ADSL will be available in Victoria on July 1. No, I don't plan on switching (anytime soon), but it's good that people finally have options in the high-speed tier.
