I say this becasue today we spend billions on stuffing
Telecom NZ's and
TelstraClear's pockets.....and the profit alone on that service would
build a kick-ass national network that would meet the infrastructural
aims and goals I have in mind.
How on earth would you know what it cost's to build a national network ? Let

stringing up some fibres on power poles with building a "national network".
To do that you need billion dollar investments in equipment and
info-structure. You go try and price up digging a trench (and getting
approval for it!) from Auckland to Wellington, then come back and tell us
how cheap you think your "kick ass" network will be.
