maybe they should have higher pricing for those on the new RBI cabinets, similar to the way UFB has higher pricing than adsl2. to have higher prices for all rural users just seems unfair
UFB pricing is cheaper than UBA (ADSL2+)
The Commerce Commission won't split rural and urban, hence the reason the cost of copper has been averaged to remove the split. It would be entirely logical to charge rural users more for their current UBA offerings, which would remove must of the saturation of the ATM backhaul that isn't capable of supporting plans designed for EUBA and Ethernet backhaul, bit that's not going to happen.
Very true. Most of those older BUBA connections over that limited ATM backhaul were in their peak when we had 2 or 5GB plans where we were all on a 1000/128k plans. People complaining about their 200GB plans and not being able to use the data. Probably because everyone else has 200GB and is stressing the service. Not to mention the average size of a website has gone up so much in 5 years.
