It is quite staggering that we have a model under which Chorus can: -
- Require a user to pay a six figure sum for infrastructure to connect them to fibre,
- Then get to own that infrastructure for $0.00,
- Then get to connect other users,
- Then charge ISPs to use the infrastructure,
- All with no recompense to the user that originally paid for it all,
Some of those things in isolation would be reasonable, collectively they are a rip-off.
Your last point is where the problem lies, as other users come on board, the original person who funded the project should be compensated
I think you are either in a area funded by the government or you are not, and if you can get fibre or not should be determined by that
So if a community, developer or individual want to pay for a fibre build they should not be allowed to? Why?
