Nz_Dude: Hey all,
Telecom are investing on average 1 million a day building this new network yet it hasnt been discussed here !
Why not talk about what we want and expect from this new amazing network, I have personally used it and its very cool. The video calling is super clear and your home internet connection is around about 25mbs i think dont hold me to that one....
Im personally looking forward to the fast internet and movies/programs on demand.... Sort of like mysky from what ive seen but a nice UI.
So share your thoughts on NZ's future 1.4 billion dollar network as most of us will be using it very very soon :P
“The overall cost of telecommunications is continuing to come down. National toll call prices are now 15% lower than they were three years ago, and international calling is 30% cheaper,” Ms Crone said
Hmmm.. I think Telecom need to find a PR person who can actually read what they have just written before they publish it. Trying to tell people that prices are falling therefore we have to put them up does not go down well with people! Power is a perfect example of a monoploy as well so it's great to see the irony of her comments!
In regards to her comments about supermarket prices how the hell does supermarket prices affect Telecom?? Slightly off topic but I could show you 1000 items that are the same price or cheaper than they were 10 years ago..
jpwise: Asterisk is a Linux Based PABX system.
Jama: $547,945 p/day if you include weekends.
$766,283 p/day if you exclude weekends.
$800,000 p/day if you exclude weekends and public holidays.
Add in unexpected project cost over runs and the odd contractor and Nz_dude is not far off.
There is also a very cool complete distribution called Asterisk@Home which even comes as an ISO www.asteriskathome.org this will take you about an hour to have a fully working PBX at home. Minimum h/w specs are basically a PII 500 with 256MB, you can get away with a 350 or 400 but a 500 is good.
Once you've installed it you can either get a hardware SIP phone or use acopy of X-Ten softphone which can run on your PC. If you've got an questions send me a PM.

New and Move: If people are moaning about the $39.95 rental fee on landlines now, in a couple of days you are going to be spitting tacks when telecom will give their press release with regards to the new rental charges.

Lets remember we don’t have the population of Australia. I think its great that we are finally going to be getting a triple play network. Dont trash a service which hasnt been launched yet as I know you will all love it when it comes out :)
