wow ... did not see THAT coming

the number of isp's are shrinking at the massive rate of knots.

with the setup costs of nbn its only going to get smaller.

isp's are such an incestious bunch. tpg buys into iinet. iinet buys node.

nothing as far as their announcement goes. They will operate as seperate companies .. for the time being.

It may make plans cheaper if they use the buying power of iinet to get better deals.

hows this ...  internode buy capacity from pipe networks (among others)
pipe networks is owned by tpg.
tpg have a large amount of iinet shares
iinet will soon own internode

round and round we go.

so tpg get revenue from pipe for products it sells to its own investments lol.
