sbiddle:
craigdrown: I wasn't arguing the technical merits. The point was that surely current business fibre margins must be a lot higher than UFB margins? And that would give some incentive for Chorus not to be in a hurry to add UFB availability?
It will be interesting to see how many businesses opt for the "vastly superior" P2P over UFB once they have a choice.




Once again you're back to trying to directly compare orange and apples. P2P and GPON product offerings both co-exist in the UFB world because there are significant differences between the two.

Whether businesses choose a P2P product or a GPON product is going to depend entirely on what their requirements are. As general internet access a GPON product will be fine, but if you're wanting a premium product with dedicated high CIR and or point to point or point to multipoint linking then you're going to opt for a P2P offering.





Worth noting that not everyone can have GPON Product right now, where I am in the near fringe of Auckland CBD, as far as anyone has been able to quote me, I can just have P2P.

Well, the year two rollout is just as suckful (for me). A mere 1 km away from the very edge of the Business Fibre map, and 200m away from the very edge of the Year 2 rollout. You'd think they'd take advantage of the fact that Auckland Transport has been tearing up our road and poking holes in the footpath for the last year or so.
