Beccara: 2 Years ago I would have agreed that SXC was being greedy and the price of international was very high, Medium sized bandwidth buys were $200-300 per mbit but now with SXC's price drops (arguably because of talks of new cables) International now costs around $80-125 for medium sized buys from resellers, This has some room to drop but not alot



Yet in Australia they're openly talking about data costing $40/mbit international.

What we need is PPC2 and nothing more.


That's what happens when in ONE city (Sydney) You have an estimated 2.2 million homes and for the WHOLE of NZ you have 1.6million. Bandwidth in AU is always going to be cheaper because they are buying more than NZ could ever justify.




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated 

Have plan, send $NZD50m

I know and I agree.

Again, that is why we need a national investment in a single cable to .au so that we can work with people like MMC and others to pick up capacity via .au.

Last time I checked, PPC2 would cost $60m and that's all.

That's $15 for each of us to pick up a tbit of capacity in to .au.

We don't need another .us cable.  There are enough running up there now.

Bevan tells us that data isn't going to keep it's .us focus anyway in this region.
