Regarding this piece on Computerworld - Link

This to me is an interesting move, but means Hamilton now has the choice of 2 LLU providers (telstraclear being the other one).
Not everyone in Hamilton is going to be able to use this as I believe most of the new cabinets have been installed.

Hey DJShadow

Slightly OT - The other day I saw Vector contractors laying what looked like fibre? This was on Wall Street between Dominion Road and Grandview Road.

Have you seen any Vector vans around the rest of Nawton at all?

Doesn't seem to make financial sense given government FTTH plans and many customers being connected to cabinets and not the exchange.

Bet they will not make any return on their investment.
