aether22: So what she meant to say was 'What has every telco in the world has done in the past other than Telecom New Zealand'?

Not paid their bills in New Zealand legal currency?

Tyler - Parnell Geek - iPhone 3G - Lenovo X301 - Kaseya - Great Western Steak House, these are some of my favourite things.

willnz: portunus, existing orcon customers wouldn't be moved back over. Not everyone in the exchange is being moved to cabinets, especially not customers who are already connected to other providers equipment. If Telecom came in and just started unplugging cables from their gear, I'd imagine the other providers would get mighty upset Cool

If anybody expects to keep the LLU connection after cabinetisation near their place, they will have to realise their connection would be worthless due to excessive far-end crosstalk. Telecom would not attenuate their cabinets just to slow everybody down to allow for your 3km phone line being in the same cable binder, even if they could realistically jumper it back to old cable going to the exchange.

Telecom are currently arguing that unbundled sub-loops should cost more than unbundled loops. The Commerce Commission has not decided what price telecom will be allowed to charge to providers that want to do their own outdoor cabinets.

Time to find a new industry!

So we are back on topic now?????? some people stuff up the future because they couldn't understand history. The rest of us are trying to be less confused by learning from others. While we are at it, maybe we can give telecom a run for its money but people will misinterpret one thing or another in the telecommunications industry, cant be avoided since technical things are so specialised these days. 99% of telecomms users are not ready or interested in the guts of such an arcane subject or the way its provided anyway. Apparently somebody just "flicks a switch" right?

If you want a constructive topic, start a new one about contention ratios and backhaul unbundling that never happened thanks to ComCom not having any power to "determine" it.
