The NBN is Just Stupid

Why are people talking as if the Philippine National Broadband Network deal makes any sense at all? If the Philippine government wants to get connected, have them hook their offices up to existing Philippine ISPs and be done with it. A government VPN over DSL, cable, and satellite plans from the best providers in each province would cost far less to build and maintain than this $329 million white elephant.

Connectivity is a commodity. The Philippine government is not YouTube; its bandwidth requirements simply do not justify building its own Internet backbone. Whatever your politics are, the NBN is just stupid.
