I didn't read the whole release and as I live in Oz now I don't care
too much, but it is still good news.
In Oz they have local loop unbundling too. Though no naked DSL so I
still have to pay Telstra for a line rental. Though that is less than
$18 a month. I get my broardband from a company called Internode.
Originally they didn't have a DSLAM at my location but now they do so
I'm in line for transition from a Telstra DSLAM (limited to 1.5Mbit) to
their own ADSL2 24Mbit DSLAM. I get 40GB of traffic a month for
around $80. Rate limited to 7k/sec after 40GB. I imagine NZ will have
similar plans within a fairly short period.
Terressa Guttung was able to give a convincing reason as to why one
*should* unbundle the local loop as well as why one *should not*
unbundle the local loop.
Personally, I think what Jonny Martin presented at NZNOG sums it up...
