Pinkfish: Something else to consider when looking at when RSP plans will change is that there are 4 local fiber companies.  If the RSP is serving areas not covered by Chorus then they will likely be wanting to wait until the other local fiber companies are also offering those plans.  It would likely not be a good experience for customers to be told that they could not get the plan they want as they are connected by Enable, Northpower, or UFF.


How is that significantly different from only offering, say, cable or VDSL plans in areas they are available?


Customer will have to understand its on a different network provider and not theirs.
=ENDS=


I still don't see it being significantly different. For example, some ISPs (VF included) offer 200Mbps fibre, but only in selected areas. Surely if "only in selected areas" can be handled for one fibre plan, it can be handled the same way for several fibre plans?


Yes. If they cant get 200Mbp/s and only 100Mbp/s They are out of luck. like our friend Tim over at Outram.
Cant get decent speeds. Just due to where they are and network capability.

networkn: All this vitirol over someone asking a reasonable question.

It's a little over the top. Most people don't understand the difference between what Chorus offer and what RSP's offer. 

A simple answer like "There is usually a delay between Chorus offering new plans and RSP's making use of them" would have been far more appropriate surely?





I cannot agree with you more networkn.  The reason people post such questions here in GZ is because the don't know the answer, not to look like imbeciles...

Yep! Nor to invite abuse from the same few people over and over.
