I never went into to this expecting for it make through. I know there
a various hoops that need to jumped through. When I applied I thought
two things would happen.
1. It would go through - Very unlikely
2. It would get rejected and it would get everyone talking about it.
I have received some response from ITU. So thing is no dead yet. I
will be talking to the MED in Jan. I just hope out of all this it is
not another two years before this gets traction in New Zealand and all
us can work together on some sort of VoIP peering in New Zealand. I
really like the suggestion of e164.org

It's more accurate to say that it is extremely unlikely that this
application would be approved (you never know with MED) but, as
previously stated, MED would consult with the TCF and they are most
likely to say no.
James, it's not really fair to say that "InternetNZ has been sitting on
this for two years, and this looks like they have not moved forward on
the schedule for the task force. If they have not why haven't they
applied for the allocation".
We (and I mainly mean Michael but also Keith and Jordan and others)
worked hard to persuade the telcos that it was a Good Thing(tm) but the
TCF is where the process got bogged down. They kept saying 'yes, we must
do a test' but never when or how.
There's little point in applying for the delegation if you know it's not
going to be accepted. We did indeed discuss setting up an independent
server and "just doing it" but, without the formal delegation, it's a
little hard for people to find you. Personally, I'd like to see the
decision made by the Telecommunications Commissioner, rather than the
people at MED, but that's government for you.
James, I hope you're not basing your business plan on getting the
delegation, because I can't see it happening.
