Malcolm Turnbull would have been quietly relieved to preside over the unveiling of Australia's first FttN NBN customers. But the launch did nothing to clarify questions around the government's relationship with Telstra, the competitive stance of the Coalition's NBN, and the nagging suspicion that Turnbull is digging himself into a deep, deep hole.
Alcatel-Lucent has revealed that NBN Co is taking on its VDSL2 vectoring line equipment to facilitate fibre-to-the-node infrastructure.
Telecoms giant posts strong financials for the year on back of fibre broadband growth
Technical restrictions mean that NBN Co will not be able to offer its pending fibre-to-the-basement (FTTB) product in buildings where TPG Telecom has already installed FTTB services, NBN Co CEO Bill Morrow has confirmed. The alternatives? FTTP to the apartment – or no NBN Co service at all.
NBN Co will begin rolling fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) services to "key" inner-city apartment buildings by mid-year as it brings forward its multi-dwelling unit strategy in an effort to fight competition from upstart TPG Telecom.
NBN Co could ultimately end up paying Telstra AU$98 billion over the next 55 years in lease payments for ducts, dark fibre and other telecommunications infrastructure, according to a report.
As debate rages over TPG competing against NBN Co, TPG has released its unlimited plans for services on NBN Co's network, which the company says were only possible through its large fibre infrastructure assets.
The Senate Select Committee on the NBN has found the government's fibre-to-the-node (FttN) model is "inadequate", criticised the government's NBN Strategic Review for fudging its numbers to support the FttN model, and recommended that NBN Co be "unshackled" to continue the FttP rollout free from political interference.
The Italian city is opening up its underground infrastructure to help speed a €15m fibre to the home deployment.
NBN Co's deal to pay Telstra to access its duct and pipe infrastructure limits the government's ability to reduce the cost of the fibre-to-the-premises rollout, according to Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Fibre network construction will continue for the NBN in Tasmania for at least another 36,000 premises while the government assesses a plan to use Aurora's pole infrastructure.
BT Openreach is raising the price for residents who want to upgrade their fibre-to-the-cabinet service to a full fibre-to-the-home service by up to £2,625.
BT will make a second pass on locations that it hasn't managed to deliver fibre to in previous attempts.
Universal price guarantees, ensuring equal prices for regional and urban Australians under Labor's NBN model, could disappear if the government's fibre-to-the-node (FttN) services tried to compete against existing HFC networks, NBN Co has warned.
Australia's new Liberal Party government is using the wrong strategy for rolling out the country's national broadband network (NBN) and should consolidate the planned two-stage deployment of fibre-to-the-node (FttN) technology into one rollout, a leaked internal report has revealed.
Is Telstra's copper network dead or isn't it? Experts just can't seem to agree – nor can those people that were supposed to be Malcolm Turnbull's allies, who are compromising his Telstra renegotiations and his case for rural FttN at the same time.
Tasmania is hoping to resurrect an old plan to use Aurora Energy's power pole infrastructure to deliver the fibre-to-the-premises NBN to ensure that the state does not get fibre to the node instead.
The telco's first-quarter results have revealed BT's dominance of UK fibre connections.
In a relatively small addition to its rollout, BT has revealed the names of a handful of new exchanges to get fibre-enabled.
