Gooseybhai: 
Just remember, copper ADSL will be like having dialup modem speeds in 10 years time (and used for backup / fallback when fibre drops out etc).



I see this alot, where people are thinking ADSL is going to be a viable backup when fibres out everywhere, this is heavily unlikely the cost of keeping that service running would be rather expensive.

I would think a more viable backup would be the cellular network.

Gooseybhai: Funny. Your better off writting to the opposition MP Jacinda Adern (Labour). Im sure shes more likley to hassle the sitting National MP by way of some sort of debate in the chamber at a suitable time when the house meets regarding a similar topic or when the oppurtune arises !

Actually thats a good point any chance to have a go a the government its worth a shot and might get a result.
