This is great news for the hi-tech community in Chch, and good news for the community as a whole.
Interesting comments about TCL in the article:
But Mr Bouma also pointed to Enable Networks, the dark fibre network founded by the city council, and recently the subject of a $36 million upgrade funded by the CDC.
At the recent TelCon10 conference, TelstraClear chief executive Allan Freeth savaged Enable as a waste of ratepayer money and a dampener on private investment.
However, Enable has proved one of the key incentives for HP to pour money and high-tech jobs into the city. (And, one, could note, it hasn’t ultimately dissuaded TelstraClear, which a few weeks after his TelCon 10 speech announced a 100Mbit/s upgrade over the next 12 months for its Christchurch, Wellington and Kapiti cable systems)."
