The NBN has long been our “soup du jour”, but with a new government comes new expectations — and what looks to be a very different regulatory and pricing system for NBN Co to grapple with. What will that mean for the NBN, consumer prices and the future of broadband in Australia? We catch up with David Braue to talk all things NBN!

Meanwhile, Instagram has been making itself popular… no, wait, scratch that, making itself VERY UNPOPULAR with its core crowd of photo fanatics as it tries to take on TikTok at its own game and win. Is this deft strategy from Instagram, or an overreach that will see it go the way of MySpace and Ping?

(Bonus points if you remember Ping. You probably don’t.)
