Detruire: It's interesting to note that the only ISPs I've seen mention gigabit plans are small ones: Full Flavour, BigPipe, and Myrepublic.

 

 

 

And that obscure one - what's it name again - Spark ?

Where is the Spark announcement of their gigabit plan pricing? I haven't seen it mentioned here.

I saw a Spark announcement for customers to sort of pre-order their 1Gbp plan but I cant  remember where I saw it.

they are probably making sure that their own infrastructure and handovers etc can handle it before announcing it. nothing worse that offering something 5x faster and not being able to give the customers that speed all the time

 

look at Vodafone and their cable dilemma, though that was caused by data usage

Hmm, considering Chorus' financial difficulties in other areas of business, I wonder how much the rest of the country is subsidising Dunner's gig speeds?

 

 

what financial difficulties? that they only made 90million profit this year? lol

 

 

 

 

I was under the impression that Chorus' bid for the UFB build had included the profit from their copper network at the price it was before the CC most recently cut it down. With reduced profit from the copper network, the economics of the UFB build were becoming more difficult, so chorus' service speed/response time has been worsening, and already Downer has quit the UFB subcontracting business.

 

 

 

Just off the top of my head from several recent news articles, I may well be wrong.

 

 

 

 

that's their sad story to the media - while it is true to a degree, they are still rolling in cash.
