Yeah there are probably some third world countries with better internet than Australia. I’ve finally got a decent connection in my new house, but probably between 2009-last year I’ve had horrendous experiences with the internet.
Funny thing is, I grew up in rural New Zealand. There was a time for me that 28.8kbps dial-up modem was pretty good. And when I moved to Australia in 2005, the internet blew me away—and I thought it was only going to get better. I didn’t. It stayed the same, or got worse. In that time New Zealand’s internet only improved. Don’t get me wrong: I love living in Australia. But the internet really isn’t up to par.
