NBN ponders Netflix tax, should teens be banned from social media? – Vertical Hold Episode 235


The “Netflix Tax” for the NBN emerges, and we ponder the tricky question of teenage use of social media in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Casa Systems

This week, owing to a bout of viral laryngitis, I break out the emergency Kidman as Angus Kidman from Finder joins the show, along with Leigh Stark from Pickr.

We’re talking the implications of the NBN building video streaming charging into its wholesale packages, Optus getting put in the naughty corner by the ACCC and what you can practically do to keep your teenagers safe in the social media world!

Hmm… I may not have had much of a voice this week, but I’ve been busy writing about that topic ’round these parts.
