At least, our internet does.
Earlier this week I finally received my Canary home security system. It's a small cylinder that sits on your shelf and has a HD camera, night vision and temp / humidity / air quality sensors. It has a live view for watching in real time and learns about your house so it knows when you come home, knows to ignore pets running around and such.
The fatal flaw? Live view requires a minimum upload speed of 1mb/s to run. I get 0.55mb/s on wireless, slightly more on Ethernet. I cannot watch Live View. If someone breaks in, I can only watch the highlights reel after he's nicked off with everything, instead of hitting the "Sound the alarm" button and blasting him with 120db of sound to scare him off.
I'm sick of Australia being low on the list when it comes to internet. I'm sick of people viewing the internet like some kind of Tamagotchi fad, not worthy of putting money into because it's going to die out in the next year or two anyway. I'm sick of the bullshit this "National Broadband Network" has become and I'm just sick of Australia having a backwards view of internet related things in general.
In 2010 we were behind Mongolia in average upload speeds. Mongolia. A country with slightly more people in it than Melbourne. And their internet speeds were better.
Pull your finger out, Australia. I want to use my home security system.
