Palm - Australia's Fibre NBN dreams finally taken out and Shot...

Forum: Web OS and Palm OS - www.geekzone.co.nz
Well it had officially happened, the OZ govt have bought back that country's copper network and will use it as the "last mile" in the NBN which will now become a "fibre to the node" network, While this is a short term solution to speed up the rollout, I think in the long term it will be a major millstone, I am looking foward to the Ozzy press lamenting their poor speeds in about 5-10 years time when NZ UFB is offering speeds well north of 200Mbs,  

Rather than pay Telstra $11 billion to decommission the copper network under the previous Labor government’s plan, the new Coalition Government will pay the telco the same amount with slightly different terms. The new arrangement still sees Telstra disconnect premises as the NBN is connected there, except for when the service uses either Telstra’s existing copper or hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) networks. In that case, Telstra will transfer ownership of the connectivity assets (that is: the fibre/copper and the ongoing maintenance and operation of said assets) to NBN Co. Telstra has negotiated the deal so that it will still deliver Foxtel over the HFC networks after it’s transferred to NBN Co for uninterrupted service for customers. Under the new agreement, Telstra still isn’t getting $11 billion in a lump sum: the payment schedule is still tied to the roll-out of the NBN.

As a result of the new deal, Telstra CEO David Thodey said that the company and its shareholders have been “kept whole” based on the value of the transaction resembling what it signed back in 2011. NBN Co CEO Bill Morrow said at the same press conference this afternoon that the new agreement will allow the company to “shave years off the NBN rollout schedule.” “In the last six years, we have connected 300,000 users. In the next six years, we want to scale up to 8 million users,” Morrow said, praising the new agreement as it no longer required Aussie families to “have their gardens…and driveways” dug up. Under the old fibre-to-the-home plan, the NBN Co would dig up streets to lay fibre to every home. The new agreement formalises the fibre-to-the-node plan, which allows for existing copper to cover the last mile between street-based fibre nodes and the homes themselves.
