Telstra announced last week that it will upgrade it's Cable network in Australia to DOCSIS 3.0 enabling download speeds to customers of 100MBps, in it's 5 main metropolitan areas.

Will this drive any potential network upgrade in NZ?

Can't imagine why it would. They won't offer new products too far in excess of the competition as it's not viable in NZ.

Until TelstraClear are threatened with losing their access monopoly in NZ it would be unlikely that they'll rush to upgrade to DOCSIS3.0.

But we can dream of upgrades.......

Planning and preparation for DOCSIS 3.0 has been underway for quite sometime. 

It is certainly essential before TCL can deliver some of it's planned services.

But as we all know, in the world of TelstraClear, there is no relationship between planning, discussing, and hyping network upgrades, and actually performing said upgrades and offering relevant services.

Everything comes down to $. I'm sure in NZ was given even 1% of that $300 million it could do wonders.

Looks like with the threat of Telstra having to divest it's cable operation - the plug will be pulled on the cable upgrade investment.
