sorry but who is this Tech expert and what is he talking about , he thought $400 would be a fair price to watch the world cup
LOL'd at this from Juha:
"Sky have got to maintain a satellite network and structures on the land. Spark can simply use an existing network. Sky basically looks dead in the water to me.
It's not as simple as that. iirc Spark still don't peer properly with other NZ ISPs... so the question will be how will content be delivered? Will they do a good job and use a big CDN, or will they try and fudge it with a DIY job?
It must be tempting to fudge it yourself and blame other ISPs for people going over data caps, poor connection quality from other ISPs etc.
