Retailers would love an NBN backhaul tariff restructure


Re: NZ Model


"Please stop considering a very small minority (<14% willing to pay for 100Mbps, zero for 1Gbps) with the general community. Every house has good / bad points and people have made choices based on this for a millenium. The NBN is a national project, not middle class welfare."

So if that 14% would be make more money for nbn than the 80% you bitch on about. But you have turn it in to class ware far with you speed lotto fanboi support.

"Clearly based on this the NBN woes are Labor's fault then because they put in place design and financial model for the NBN. Why did Labor set the wholesale 1Gbps price at more than double the NZ price? The Coalition have made CVC pricing significantly cheaper."

Lol no they haven't. Plus the coalition said there fttn plan cost would be half the cost of fttp but it cost the same. You would think since it's claimed to be cheaper than fttp the whole sale cost would be cheaper too. But then with fttp it doesn't cost to increase the speed on its network compared to fttn requires a whole new rollout aka the FOD you expect people to pay for a network unable to deliver speed that would have been a viable under labor.

"What you haven't provided is the ingredients for the magic pudding that enabled NZ to deliver the same service significantly cheaper. Could it be the $11 billion that Labor agreed to pay Telstra to move customerse off the copper network onto FTTP, whereas in NZ the incumbrant telco was structurally separated?"
