The NBN Co's latest pricing review appears to be a massive waste of time, with the company putting up ideas, ignoring feedback on all but minor issues and then just ploughing on with own agenda, one retail service provider says.
One of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull's contributions to the national broadband network, the HFC network, has been termed a dog's breakfast by a retail service provider.
An NBN retail service provider has questioned the need for a service like the NBN Co' Enterprise Ethernet in places where fibre connections are already available at a much lower cost.
Australian telecommunications providers have welcomed the move by the NBN Co to spend up to $700 million on creating 240 Business Fibre Zones, including a presence in 85 regional centres. The plan was announced on Tuesday.
After what seems like an eternity, a security company has dared to mention the unmentionable: the US does have advanced persistent threats or nation-state attack groups which are active.
Tasmanian ISP Launtel will launch a new service from 29 May based on the new NBN 1000/50 connection that the NBN Co is launching that day.
The head of Internet service provider Launtel says the planned contact-tracing app for COVID-19 will be a failure unless the government takes additional steps to ensure that Australians have faith it will not violate their privacy.
The NBN Co's efforts to make it possible to get gigabit speeds on HFC will help alleviate the scaling problem that exists due to the pricing model for CVC, according to the head of a small ISP.
The NBN Co miscalculated when it decided not to supply a modem to each resident on fibre-to-the-node and fibre-to-the-building connections, the head of a small retail service provider says, adding that this could have helped the company diagnose connection issues remotely.
The NBN Co's decision to offer an increase in the CVC included with 100Mbps plans from 2.5Mbps to 3Mbps will not provide a speed boost to the extent that those reading certain media outlets would expect, the head of a small Tasmanian retail service provider says.
Small Tasmanian-based Internet services provider Launtel is likely to stop offering its 250/100Mbps NBN service in Canberra due to the "extremely expensive" CVC charges imposed by NBN Co, the company that is building Australia's national broadband network.
TPG Telecom-owned ISP iiNet has launched a plan to provide a symmetrical gigabit fibre connection for businesses at a monthly cost of $878.90, including GST.
Along with miserable broadband, the NBN has brought into our lives a number of terms that sound like words from a foreign language that are designed to prevent one from ever understanding what the whole thing is about. The head of one ISP is trying to demystify the network using simple language and everyday analogies.
The only way that the NBN Co, the company rolling out the Australian national broadband network, can achieve its stated aim of reaching its goal of $52 average revenue per user by the time the rollout ends, is by earnings from what is called CVC "overage", the head of a small RSP claims.
The head of a small Internet service provider has questioned whether a write-down of the value of the national broadband network will end up being the panacea it is increasingly painted as, pointing out that the main problem facing the network is how it should be upgraded to full fibre after the initial build is over.
The Australian competition watchdog has the right intentions when it fines Internet service providers for not living up to the speed claims they make, a small ISP says, but adds that the NBN Co should not be allowed to get off scot-free.
The NBN Co's latest promotional move, offering retail service providers $160 for each customer who signs up for a 100Mbps service, effectively requires these customers not to downgrade or disconnect until January 2021, according to the head of a small ISP.
Small NBN retail service providers will have to compete on quality of service, not price, if they want to stay in business, given the way the industry is structured, the head of a small ISP claims.
A full-fibre national broadband network would have cost much more, possibly as much as an extra $40 billion, but it will have to be built some time as it is the only technology that can do the heavy lifting Australia will need into the future, the head of a small ISP claims.
Australia's biggest telco Telstra took down part of the Internet in the country on Thursday morning due to a stuff-up with the routes it advertised through the border gateway protocol. The company claims a third party was responsible for the error.
