Then you tell your customers to look at the facts, ask them to try load
sites such as trademe.co.nz , nzdating, etc and they will notice that all
sites are slow and they should contact "T". Soon a lot of customers will be
moaning at "T" and move away from the provider causing a loss.
Other big customers of "T" will say "I purchased a national link from you,
so why does traffic still route internationally". The only response they
could give is "Well that customer doesn't buy national connectivity from us,
so they are seen as an international site".
There is only one main site I think "T" host and that's a bank . This would
mean that the bank is going to have to take support calls from non "T"
customers who claim their site is slow. That bank is then going to throw a
fit and peer themselves to APE / WIX or change providers to keep customers
There are going to be customers affected on both sides of the ball park.
And to comment on what Richard Patterson had to say on the holmes show, it's
true, it's a joke. They were saying how they trying to speed up the internet
in the country and that it's telecom slowing stuff down, but now Telstra
have put their own spin on the game.
2Mb cable is not going to run at 2Mb any longer, most content providers only
have a couple of Mb international, the fastest speeds you going to get is
from US providers.
On another note, having broadband speed is one thing, but having the content
is another. "T" can provide the good speeds, but it's up to the rest of the
country to provide the content and ridiculous peering doesn't help. What are
"T" customers going to do in a couple of years when streaming TV channels
like the r2.co.nz feed is the norm, ordering movies like PPV online, etc.

I hope ISP's stand together and don't peer
with "T". That way all "T"
customers will have slow internet connectivity to all NZ sites and make
purchase a line into those content providers.
No it won't. It will have TCL customers ringing content providers
saying their servers are slow or broke.
