WiMax is dead in Australia

by hosko / April 3, 2008 11:39 AM PDT

I know BOL has been talking about an Australian WiMAX ISP, no one in Australia has actually ever heard of them they are tiny at best. Well the Australian Government had $958 million contract to build a WiMAX network that would cover 90% of homes that are currently under-served with broadband. OPEL the group that was building the network could only get 72% coverage so the contract was terminated.

However all is not lost as the Australian Government still has committed $4.7 billion to building a national fibre to the node network, which also includes fibre to the premise for every school.

When that happens we will become the bit-torrent kings Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
