cyril7:- Suspend the forced bulk migration of existing broadband customers onto a new copper-based broadband service. We will, however, continue to supply this new broadband service to all new customers;
- Remove the requirement for Telecom to migrate 17,000 customers onto a new VoIP over copper service by the end of this year; and
- Remove the requirement for Telecom to build a new set of wholesale systems that are not consistent with the industry structure implied by UFB.
Telecom?s fibre-to-the-node programme is not impacted by the variation requests.
So does that means that ASAMs remain in service and current customers on them remain there? As the FTTN program is not effected does this mean that current customers on ADSL1 and on an exchange will remain there with no upgrade path (presumably unless they requrest) to ADSL2+
Sounds like some of the poor old NEAX's will live for another few years (or months yet).
Which wholesale products are effected, EUBA I presume.
Anyone care to comment.
Well so far the NEAX's have outlived there warranty for sure ( They are brilliant pieces of technology ) . well i guess the S Type exchanges are still going to keep on going. So people still wont be able to get the basic services without this forced upgraded
Mind you it will be interesting how much the government will put into the network after all there is still lead in the ground that is still out living plastic cables!
one question that is irrelevant what are they going to do with with all the Asam 7300's are they been put into areas that never had broadband ?
