At last there's an official confirmation, but no mention of dates: "by the end of the year"...

Oh yes... Sweet fast Internet connections. Hey, I am available for trial ;-)

As requested in my signature below... I am delighted to hear about VoIP and Movies on demand. Certainly am very available for trial for VoIP on both our lines/numbers, and MoD!! PLEASE PICK ME TOO! (hehe)... oh with 25Mbps, does that mean we can see the IPTV settop box instead of the digital coaxial STB? I mean, it'll be great if we heading into that direction!




Internet is my backyard...

Good news.  I'm on the 4Mbps - wonder if I'll get an upgrade to 10?

No mention of a PVR, though :-(  The current digital STB needs to be kicked into touch.

Does anyone know what the article means when it says they're offering Internet Protocol Virtual Private Networks?  What kind of service will they be offering over VPN?  I am quite happily using my office's VPN right now.

*sniff*  At this stage, I'd settle for them finishing laying cable in Wellington (if push comes to shove, just finishing Churton Park?)

He means eventually QoS, SIP and other requirements for quality data networking and VOIP will eventually be supported on the technology, in NZ. So data services for business become more viable, whereas now it's best efforts based with no resilience, which is why all products you see are primarily consumer.

As usual pricing will be key.  I have just downgraded my 40G 10Mbs plan to 20G 4Mbs since I found I was not using all the capacity and so didn't want to pay for it. But in doing that I also had to downgrade speed (which seems to be okay at the moment).

If they upgraded 40G and offered 25Mbs for that plan for the current price, I would be interested

we looked at "carbon emissions" and the train fares  for both of us to work from home, 10mb connection is cost effective, although if we used things like joost, podcasts and so forth on a daily basis we would really be deep in press releases bandwidth-wise. however TCL could go a long way by allowing customers to buy STBs and not using STB which are so out of dates the manufacturers no longer keep the manuals.
