Over the last 5 months NZ has seen and learned more about Broadband, who's in it and how it works than any other country I believe.

You know it's reached far and wide when the taxi drivers talk to you abou it Smile

A while ago Telecom let the country know they were trialling ADSL2+, and to expect service later this year. After the events of May that was quietly put back, and the country has dropped it in search of full speed ADSL.

ADSL2+ has been around a while now, and has been commercially deployed in many places. It's not complete voodoo to deploy compared to a few years ago.

So where has this gone? Are Telecom preparing a whacking great upgrade which they will spring on the country, as Telstra did when they announced HSDPA to 98% of where Australians are?

What does the group think?

Early this year on Campbell Live, Teresa G - CEO of Telecom, told the country not to worry and that ADSL2+ would be rolled out by June this year.

June has come and gone.

One heck of a lot has happened this year since that interview... I was told at a recent meeting at Telecom that ADSL2+ has been put back by about 12 months as regulation has meant that more emphasis has had to be put on naked DSL

I agree. Until things are out on an official announcement, comments are just... comments. I take those as campaign promises. And I don't charge for them.
