Quibbler:JEDENZED: So UFF who deployed fibre here in Hamilton recently announced making a 1Gbps residential service to retail service providers at a wholesale price of $65 p/m fixed until 2020.That's cheap! is that for unlimited?
Can anyone report if there are any trials underway using this infrastructure? Also, any ideas what $65 wholesale is likely to translate to for end user residential customers?
$65 is the wholesale cost for the layer 2 fibre connection from the customer to the ISP handover. It's not really limited or unlimited, it's merely a layer 2 pipe.
An ISP then has to add all of their bandwidth and backend costs on top of this to build a retail price, so based on current pricing in the market and looking at costs expect to be somewhere in the sort of price point I posted above.
