Beccara: What? $1/mbit is a crackden pipe dream. You couldn't get wholesale $1/mbit rates from one end of a street to another. submarine cables cost alot of money 


Capacity in Sydney is 10c/mbit.



From where to where?

Ragnor: From where to where? 


A better question would be 'in what sort of volume'?

I don't know from where to where, but you said that you couldn't get a across a street for $1.

Well if I put a 6 core fibre across a street with 1Gb media media converters on it and sold 100mbit links then I'd be doing ok at $1/m for 1mbit - that's $1200pa just for 10% of ~17% of my fibre capacity.

Sydney also has 4.5million people in it and a population density 128 times greater than NZ (Even just working on Auckland Sydney has twice the population density) 

Apples and Oranges, Their simple is no way to make money on a submarine cable from NZ to AU and offer that price point




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated
