My daughter just spent a year in Oz and we were shocked by how poor the Net access and telephone service was - very expensive and poor service/availability for both.

We all assumed that Oz would have facilities like all the other advanced countries but not so.

Apparently telecom services there are a government operation so......

She was on the east coast as well - Melbourne, Sydney etc.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
