 Excellent news! Will be great when it's up and running. Hopefully they don't run into any roadblocks along the way.

I notice that the new cable will connect with Norfolk Island.

 

Be grateful that we don't pay their prices - here is their current top-of-the-range ADSL1 internet bundle:

 

Norfolk Island Internet ADSL 230

 

5 Mbps Download / 1 Mbps Upload
Data Allowance 28 Gigabytes Peak and 28 Gigabytes Off Peak, per month
$230 (Australian) per month

This is excellent news for those islands. It wont affect NZ that much in terms of prices.

 

But we might get less outages, due to more diversity.

my guess is that the "TGA" will have more of a effect on NZ.
