TUANZ just bleated on about number portability
and interconnect and
failed to see what else was on offer. They've finally woken up to
broadband - about 6 years too late.
Richard, what is TUANZ doing now that you see of value?
well they use the word "broadband" now, so soon it might be understood
a modem is dead useless and people might ask for more.
They REALLY need to
start pushing VoIP so we can get over this PSTN stuff.

well get 10 homes and you write to Frank March asking for a Network
Operators Licence (sorry Frank). Then use Section 13 (in the old act)
basically says "fess up or come see the
Sect 148 is also usefull, you can get buggers who muck up your network
for "interferring with a network" for $5k
I've used Sect 13 twice - once in power, once at CityLink.. Both times on
Govt agency - Defence :-) Both worked like a charm.

with the internet unless
provided free -
even then I think there are still rules.
Nope - Frank doesn't charge. But try to buy him a lunch from time to time.
Two folks that I know have achieved Operator Status this year. It is
NOT hard. Except of course that I want personal status so I can get my
cat-5 a bit further down the street and Frank won't do that. Maybe its
I bought you lunch Frank......
IAWR - Be a leader rather than a follower!
see earlier posting and go buy cat-5.......
PS since we're all having so much fun, the other "mainframe mentality"
architecture in my view is the TV industry. A good example is NZ ON Air.
Their 5 year plan mentions Internet ONCE - when it gives their webiste
