via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Oh. The takedown was a few days ago, it seems. The FBI press release is just now. But here’s in interesting thing…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

It’ll be interesting to see how the “mainstream media” covers this. A billion dollar bank heist would be all over the news. This? Too hard.

AlphaBay run by “a 25-year-old Canadian citizen living in Thailand”, the FBI says. Turned over $1 billion in two years.

NewtonMark Result: The NBN is the most expensive terrestrial consumer broadband network on the planet, bar none. Of course it’s congested, idiots.

via Tweetbot for iΟS (retweeted on 10:13 AM, Jul 21st, 2017 via TweetDeck)

NewtonMark Also contributing: NBNco should have dropped the CVC charge to remove distance factors when 121 POIs were instituted. They didn’t.

via Tweetbot for iΟS (retweeted on 10:13 AM, Jul 21st, 2017 via TweetDeck)

NewtonMark The ACCC created the mess of 121 POIs, increasing ISP CVC commitments 20-fold. Now they whine about network performance claims.

NewtonMark The ACCC is directly responsible for the economic conditions which make speed claims “dodgy.” Healer, heal thyself. smh.com.au/business/media…
