    In reply to: john constantine on Wednesday 23/08/06 12:22am Under balanced drilling technique keeps drilling mud out of the equation allowing gas to flow from tight formations. Lot of gas in central Australia in tight formations. Whereas flow might be smaller than other areas the reserves are very large. Hence the probabiltiy that multiple drilling will give a bigger volume. Rawson has huge areas in their portfolio.

    Currently drilling and sell side disappearing.

    Selling drying up. Gas to liquid plant in central Australia appeals to me. There is plenty of gas in the region and at current oil prices, it should be a winner. I believe CPT had the project analysis done and there are plenty of willing partners in the region. Interest should increase as the region is explored once again at better oil prices.

    Pennant formation on chart indicates a target of 65 cents maybe more if news keeps flowing.

    It's amazing how little is known by the general public about what Telstra is up to. The Government float decision is part of the problem....they were greedy to get the money....and they are greedy to get the balance. After the T3 sale Telstra will fall in a heap because there will be no need for the government to prop them up. Telstra is holding back broadband to the bush and elsewhere by exhorbitant backhaul prices and restricting access to fibre. Voters will begin to turn the knife and the government will pressure Telstra to perform or get out. As Telstra has no performers on the staff, they will run off leaving a mess for iiNet and others to fix up. That is why iiNet is sticking to its guns and going for quality because in the long run the customer wants that. There are a lot of broadband users who are ignorant of the technology and who is pulling the strings, but this cannot be a secret for much longer. When it becomes political, iiNet will soar as an island surrounded by Telstra flood victims.

    Interesting chart which may explain current DOW

    Telstra has to answer ACCC by 26th Jan on competition infringement. Expect to see ACCC act to bring their pricing into line and make iiNet more competitive. iiNet still moving towards being a substantial telephone provider during this year which should bring in increased cash flow at the expense of Telstra. More DSLAM installations in exchanges will be eagerly sought by customers. Telstra likely to come under criticism for running down their copper network and telephone exchanges...perhaps they will be found to be in default of their agreement? iiNet share price could go above $2 in one day if ACCC does the right thing.

    Pipex Communications UK is a WIMAX company in the UK and the chart shows the rise expected of APV when the technology gets better publicity. The Times January 13, 2006 UK poised for a new wireless revolution By Elizabeth Judge, Telecoms Correspondent A NEW broadband technology that promises to revolutionise mobile access to the internet is set to make its debut in Britain after the agreement of a worldwide standard, The Times has learnt. WiMax, a wireless technology that promoters say promises faster speed and better quality internet access on the move, is being prepared for commercial use by Pipex, a British broadband company. Pipex, run by Mike Read, formerly of BT, will announce today that it is to start consumer trials of the technology in Stratford-upon-Avon, in the next few months. Industry sources say that it could be available to UK consumers as early as next year  making the UK one of the first countries to offer the new service on a national level. The roll-out of the service, which Pipex is expected to offer in partnership with a big telecoms company, will threaten the mobile operators such as O2 and Vodafone who have already begun work on the “next generation†of internet access for mobile phones  3.5G. Phones with WiMax chips will be able to bypass the phone networks, potentially threatening their revenues. At present business people on the move can link wirelessly to the internet through a technology called wi-fi. However the technology’s range is restricted to access points known as “hotspotsâ€ÂÂÂÂÂ, usually placed in cafés and airports. In contrast WiMax, which has been dubbed “wi-fi with friesâ€ÂÂÂÂÂ, operates over a much wider range  potentially several kilometres. WiMax should also provide faster speeds than wi-fi  up to eight megabits per second. Pipex is one of only two official UK licence holders for a national WiMax service. The other is PCCW, a Hong Kong-based player which operates in the UK. Though other players, including BT, are experimenting with the service, they are forced to do so through unlicensed means, or so-called “light licencesâ€ÂÂÂÂÂ, which do not offer the same consistency of service and face potential interference. Although a new batch of WiMax-suitable spectrum is set to be auctioned by Ofcom, the regulator, it is unlikely to take place before next year. Though WiMax has been eagerly talked about for many years, companies such as Pipex have been unable to promote the technology because an agreed standard was yet to be determined. This standard would be used by kit makers such as mobile phone and computer manufacturers. But after the agreement on a mobile WiMax standard, giants such as Intel, which has thrown its weight behind the technology, are moving quickly to install WiMax-compatible chips into computers and mobile phones. Other countries are also seeking to promote WiMax. Arcep, the French telecoms regulator, has received 45 applications for WiMax licences under an auction that will be concluded in October. Candidates include local authorities which have applied for regional licences. Niall Murphy, chief technology officer of The Cloud, a wi-fi player that expects to move into WiMax, said: “This is another step in the evolution of the mobile internet.†HOW WIMAX WORKS A WiMax base station, similar to a mobile-phone tower, is connected to the core national network and sends out a radio signal The signal is picked up by a receiver, either a small box or modem or a chip built into a laptop or phone The base stations, which in Pipex’s technical trials have been provided by Airspan Networks, cost about £100,000 to build. However, as the technology advances costs of building a wireless network are expected to decrease Analysts, and even the companies pushing WiMax, admit that it is a highly complicated technology that is fraught with pitfalls  building out a network involves complicated planning and typography

    Soon to be big performer due to WIMAX rollout. Will follow and maybe overtake UNW.

    I use VOIP every day from local to New York and London, quality very good with good volume. This chart indicates likely path for Engin.
  13. Chart shows Cullen are moving along nicely towards the next announcement which should be bullish if history repeats itself.
