bradstewart: Wow thats progress. The power of the 'media'...
Now how can I force TCL to lay cable in Dunedin? Hmm
If they could get their marketing act together and increase the number of subscribers in areas where they have cable now to a point where it's really profitable, I am sure they might consider other areas also. They have a pretty hefty tax loss credit with the IRD they could use :-)
But if I were a Telco trying to outdo Telecom, I wouldn't lay cable to homes - I would run fibre or at least FTTN. That would get over the distance limitations of DSL.
