The best way to minimise the value of the NBN is to jerk it around and change direction; the next best way is to build it to a reduced specification. A 93% fibre network is worth a lot more than a network with 60% FTTN, both to a potential purchaser AND to an ongoing owner. The real economic promise of the NBN is the ubiquity of a single, uniform solution.

Oh for a politician with a little vision to see the possibilities!
(... and the gumption to leave the design and build to qualified and visionary engineers)

This article reviews recent developments in global broadband deployments and highlights the growing global dominance of fibre to the premises (FTTP). Australia’s increasing use of fibre to the node (FTTN) has locked the country out of world-class broadband for years to come. If Australia is ever to obtain first-class broadband services, it will be necessary to replace FTTN with higher speed technologies.

The telecommunications industry is growing and changing at a very high pace. The growth is not only in terms of volume but also in terms of changing needs and technology. To keep up with this high pace and fast changing technologies countries need strong legislation and an efficient regulatory system to promote fair competition in industry. This presentation is a review of existing telecommunications’ legislation and regulations in New Zealand.
