... according to an article in the herald today. Not such a big deal for you lucky cable users, but I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what the pricing will be!

Does anyone know how the line rental cost is passed on via the ISP to the customer?

I posted the question under the XNet/VFX forum, but it got locked due to being considered a duplicate post.  However I though it to be relevant to XNet/VFX customers who would immediately switch from POTS to VFX and would need this info.

Sounds good, and that they will have a dedicated stream for VoIP mid next year which will also be good.  Lets get the IPTV too :P

As you said I will also be very interested in the prices, and the different range of planes.

That will be up to the SP (Service Provider) and I think you will find creative bundles , we have been waiting foir this for quite some time and we were not focused on LLU so to speak but we pushed very hard for Naked Bitstream as it will be called to be deliveered first.

It will be a wait and see what bundles will be offered I'm afraid but it will be pretty good i'm picking Wink , there will be a libe costs as Naked Bitstream still requires a charge for the line which Telecom will charge SP's, this isn't available yet so as to what exact pricing will be will be a wait and see as well.

YOu asked about the levels of Circuits, there will be a offering that will have a CIR, Committed Information Rate for these circuits, whats this means is that there has to be a minimum comitted bandwidth so applications like VOIP will work, there will be a caouple of specs for this , the details are stioll being finallised by all players so more to follow on this later as well.


Hope that answers some of your questions....we are very exicted by Naked Bitstream and we think you guys and Girls will be as well as here is a real chance to cut the Telecom Phone line if you wish , and we really believe that VFX is the perfect quality product for a fixed line replacement for the average customer .

Great to hear as an xnet customer myself but...

It goes without saying that relinquishing my landline will need to be attractive not just an alternative or for geeks ;-) 

I won't change just because I can or just because I want to take my landline custom away from TCNZ on principle

There is already a CIR on UBS, 24,28 or 32kbps from memory - enough for a g729 call but makes g711 dodgy and would require you force your media gateways to 7200bps for t.38 if you were to strictly adhere to this. The tightening of the other service characteristics are just as important
