So the churn fee is to be reduced. Can anyone enlighten me how this affects the SPEED of a connection? Was 2mbit the maximum that telecom would let wholesole customers sell their packages at?

Either 2Mbit or lower, im not sure. It will be up to an ISP how fast they offer their plans at. Bandwidth is not some Holy Grail that can be given out like lollipops at a childrens party though, it all needs to be balanced.

E.g. pointless giving someone a 7Mbit connection and say a 1gig traffic allowance, you would chew through that in no time.

This is good news though, but dont expect $30 6Mbit 20GB plans by Xmas.......

What if I close my eyes really tight and wish reaaally hard?

To be honest the article struck me as kinda sensationalist. I mean thats a pretty fast speed to be naming like that, and to say before christmas...did that strike anyone else as a bit forward? Anywhom. As long as they do something about their pings, then that's fine by me.
