HFC NBN, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Telstra outages and more: Vertical Hold Episode 82

HFC NBN has been announced, but it’s just coincidental that there’s an election looming, right? Microsoft wants you to embrace the new features in the Anniversary update to Windows 10, but again it’s coincidental that’s just after the “free upgrade” period ends, right? Meanwhile, Australia’s biggest telco suffers an outage just after annoucing $250 million in upgrades. It’s our all-coincidence special episode!
All this plus Netflix’s future as Stan and Presto subscriber numbers surge in Vertical Hold: The podcast where we channel-surf through the headlines in search of the big picture.
