Little article here by the usual suspect:
"According to several ISP sources who did not wish to be named, a month's
megabit-per-second-level connection of TelstraClear's Domestic Internet
Service will cost $160 plus GST. Purchase of TelstraClear circuits will
also be required. "
It would be interesting to see at what bandwidth the link will be worth
getting, for small ISPs the circuit cost will probably mean it's just
cheaper to use either their existing International link or another
domestic provider to deliver the bandwidth.
Even for larger providers the revenue is only going to be one or two
thousand per month each. Not much to compensate for pissing everybody else
off. And the larger providers will have plenty of options like sending
Telstra customers like Waikato University bills to route their traffic
