BT today announced plans to roll out fibre-based, super-fast broadband to as many as 10 million homes by 2012. The £1.5 billion programme will deliver a range of services with top speeds of up to 100 Mb/s with the potential for speeds of more than 1,000 Mb/s in the future.

[Read the full story here]

Where will New Zealand broadband be in 2012?

Just a bit of a correction to that story - nowhere in the story does it mention that 10 million homes will get 100Mbps broadband (as your post is titled).

Reading through it it says that new build sites will get FTTP which will deliver 100Mbps however the remainder will simply be FTTC/FTTN which delivers 40Mbps speeds or 24Mbps ADSL2+.

As for where NZ will be by 2012? Probably in a very similair situation to the UK if things all go as planned and Paul Reynolds is still at the helm.

ummm, how close, 1.5km close enough, by 2012 cabnetisation will have most homes in NZ that close or closer, no?

I am not sure what Telecom/Chorus have in mind for future upgrades within their cabinets, but the ISAM gear going in is part of a whole family of technologies including GPON that can be mixed and matched within the same frame, so no reason why once cabnetisation is complete that a gradual attachment of FTTP/H cannot occur.

So not a lot diff between whats happening here and there me thinks

Hmm now theres a thought, who would have thought that that would be Telecom's cunning plan......, I think we may have had this discussion before Cyril7 Wink

Rygrass, you are presumably in the boonies, my guess is that the UK fibre rollout wont roll past rural UK either.

For folk in the country, I suspect in time we will more likely find the likes of power utilities knocking on your door with a nice blue fibre cable over their shoulder, rather than Telecom, but its still one hell of a way off yet.

interesting.

IIRC there are around 25m households in GB, so they are aiming at around 2/5 coverage by 2012.

Which is approximately equivalent (very approximately) to delivering the same product throughout auckland and wellington in NZ.

sounds reasonable that we will be in a similar situation by then.
