Steve Wozniak is the guy who co-founded Apple Computers with Steve Jobs and people at the a business forum in Perth were stunned when they hear that he doesn’t have a Broadband Internet Connection.
“I don’t have broadband at my home,” News.com.au quoted Wozniak as saying.
“I, Steve Wozniak, don’t have broadband at my home.”
“I live one kilometre out of the main part of town,” he explained.
“Broadband is a monopoly in my town – that means you can get it from a cable company, but I don’t have cable.
“There are 50 companies that want to sell me DSL, but they’ve all got to go through the Horizon wires – the local phone company – and I’ve got one of the two worst Horizons in the country.
“And so I can’t get broadband in my house.”
Wozniak also insisted that wireless networks were more economical than fibre-optic networks for remote areas.
“This country is quite spread out, with a lot of remote places,” he said.
“I think in remote places, a lot of times a good answer economically is wireless,” Wozniak added.
My story is very similar it’s not that I live in a remote part of the country but the people who live here kind of are trying to make it that way, I am not sure why but it’s their way of fighting terrorism. If you wanna know the whole story I will put it up on my personal blog when I get a new place or a decent broadband connection, till then happy surfing.
