Good morning,

NBN Co yesterday released its revised corporate plan, revealing among other things that it would require residents to actively opt out - rather than opt in - to a fibre build in future. Those bulky back-up batteries, however, are now optional.

We have also dissected the 96-page plan into a bite-sized piece for your convenience.

And a recent survey of Federal Government agencies has found at least seven still approve Internet Explorer 6 for use by its staff, despite advice to the contrary from the Defence Signals Directorate.
