Cricket is something I absolutely love…


and even if the Mumbai hydrabads or the Delhi Goodguys don’t come down under…


…I don’t care.


Reckon that recent events involving national teams have already cemented the fact that locally we have the property, on the ground so to speak…..that we can “cut it” up there with the best of them tomorrow.

…..and the ability of public authorities / law enforcement / fire / police to change public lighting can’t be discounted as a bad idea either.


In trying to encourage the #gigatownNSN supporters I saw a rather “to ignite comment” bit last week, that went something like this….”because we are running at 1000mph on a new fibre gig network, while the rest of NZ runs at 100mph, we wouldn’t really see that many benefits.” WRONG!


I think prudently the couple of examples about immediately shoot that idea down, and indicate the writer of that piece was not really thinking of the “big picture.”


Don’t you think not just locals, but tourists would love the “feel safe” reinforcement that such a city wide network could bring?
