    I believe its an on going discussion between S2 and service providers in Aus. As we Aussies know our service providers are crap, ask for large amounts of cash and give little in return so it maybe a long process.

    Looking at you Telstra.

    Pretty much this, it isn't S2's fault that our telecommunication/internet service providers are money hungry degenerates.
    Our government would much rather put their money into enforcing their nazi-esque police state ideologies.

    EDIT: missed the bold - do I REALLY have to go in to it all now? :S

    No.
    Mostly because:

    a) It doesn't belong here and;
    b) I really don't want to see another person winging about bullshite like "my civil liberties being taken away"

    Vote 1: Bob Katter

    Edit: Ok Bob Katter is going a bit far even for me.

    A) true
    B) Now fair's fair... there's plenty I can agree with when it comes to the removal of certain liberties... but in all honesty, there's really no denying that the Australian government is starting to get WAY too involved with our personal lives.
    BUT you're right, we'll just leave it there.

    Basic jist really is, don't expect Aussie ISP's to be reasonable any time in the next decade.

    It would be nice, but as many people have said, due to aussie ISP's pricing robbing people and the speeds we get it is practically impossible..

    All we can do for now is play on the iPGN servers that are up even if there are only 20 or so

    I'm actually getting tired of having to reiterate this point every single time this topic arises.

    what are the cost for the servers?
    Around $2500
    The hosting costs are being entirely handled by iPrimus. The economics of telecommunications in Australia and Telsta's monopoly has been greatly weakened in the last few years, and our internet services are now beginning to rival that of other countries. The only major drawback is the geography of it as the population is very widespread. The costs for iPrimus to host a server would only be equal to that of the hardware, i.e., it costs the same to host here as it would anywhere else; however, instead of renting the servers, they must be bought outright, as S2 require server hosts to have ownership of servers so they can protect their server binaries under an NDA.

    Why do u need AUS servers when we have 200 ping?
    It's good.
    I even played with Elune from EU 350 ping it wasn't to bad.

    I think it is going to happen very soon...

    As on 1st jan one of the s2 employee (dont remember the name) first wished all the Australian players exclusively and also mentioned that "U guys would love what we are getting to u in the year/month"

    Then he wished to all remaining hon players.
