Telstra drops nbn™ in it as it wears compo for broadband speed ads


This has got absolutely nothing to do with whether Telstra (or any other ISP) buys sufficient or insufficient CVC ("capacity"). It is simply that these particular copper lines - because that is what they are - will NOT physically support the speeds that were sold to their subscribers. The doubters and naysayers can spruik all they want - if Telstra were to buy ten times as much CVC as it needed for this particular subset of subscribers, they would NEVER, EVER get download speeds above 25Mb/s (which is Telstra's default offering). In fact, many of them are incapable of getting even that paltry speed. Spin it any way you want - you cannot make a silk purse from a sow's ear. And the NBN is - putting it politely - more like a sow's turd than its ear!
