Regulated price cuts to wholesale copper broadband services stand after Chorus' appeal fails.
The Australian government requested detailed information on line lengths, ADSL port availability, and ADSL infrastructure as part of its review into Australia's broadband adequacy.
When it comes to broadband, Italians aren't seeing the speeds that their ISPs' adverts promise.
Telecom New Zealand this week announced its rollout of VDSL — the copper-based broadband technology promising speeds three to four times that of ADSL lines.
The Fritz!Box 3370 broadband router will appeal to those who don't need AVM's customary analogue and DECT telephony features, but it's on the pricey side.
One hopes that Malcolm Turnbull was deadpanning when he recently referred to the possibility of buying Telstra's copper access network, because if that's what his alternative NBN policy is based on, then the industry can kiss 15 years of hard-fought progress under deregulation goodbye.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, the coalition has long insisted that Labor's NBN will make broadband more expensive. The broadband prices from our largest telco have proved them correct, but the real question is: who will buy Telstra's NBN pricing story?
ISPs are enthusiastically embracing the ACCC's decision to declare Telstra ADSL services, but Telstra is understandably less excited. Now that wholesale ADSL is nearly as cheap as wholesale NBN services, will internet access get even cheaper?
In our ongoing testing of wireless ADSL2+ modem/routers, we bring you the top 10 so far. Of course, everyone has a horror story about each, so feel free to comment below on the frustration within.
Ofcom has decided that BT must cut wholesale prices for up-to-8Mbps services in many rural areas, arguing that this will lead to cheaper and faster broadband for homes and businesses
One of the strangest arguments against the NBN is that it's going to raise the price of broadband access. What those spouting this argument don't seem to realise is that next-generation access prices won't be any cheaper — and if Telstra has its way, it will make NBN Co's pricing look like loose change while killing VoIP, IPTV and "naked" services.
Australia's number two DSL provider iiNet currently only services 3.7 per cent of the premises, with ADSL in the first release sites passed by National Broadband Network (NBN) fibre, but the company is projecting that this will grow as the roll-out progresses.
The company's KA-SAT satellite has begun offering commercial services, delivering fixed line-comparable speeds across Europe and parts of North Africa and the Middle East
Having missed earlier targets for up-to-20Mbps coverage, the company now hopes to offer copper-based ADSL2+ connectivity to four-fifths of the country before the start of 2012
NBN Co has declined to say what levels of latency can be expected from the wireless technology it will use to service most of the small percentage of Australia that won't be covered by fibre-optic cable, despite concerns that wireless might be a step backward from ADSL2+ fixed broadband.
The National Broadband Network Company has responded to criticism that it's not explaining its mission well to Tasmanian residents, saying that it had appointed a community relations manager in the state. It's also reassured those in areas to be served by wireless that existing ADSL broadband over Telstra's existing copper network won't be shut down for 10 years.
The national competition regulator has broken with the differentiated pricing strategy it has used until now to set the wholesale cost of the underlying building block of ADSL broadband, instead mandating a flat rate of $16 per month for most of Australia.
BT should cut its wholesale costs by between 10 and 14 percent in rural areas, where there is no wholesale broadband competition, according to the regulator
Ofcom proposes price controls on BT Wholesale in areas lacking competition...
