NBN contractors: No problem with rollout speed
blog If you believe much of the criticism levelled at the Federal Government’s National Broadband Network project, the rollout is proceeding at a snail’s pace. Or, to quote Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull more precisely, at the pace of “an arthritic snail”. However, a lengthy article published by the ABC last week (we recommend you click here for the full article) appears to blow claims of slow rollout speeds out of the water, with NBN Co’s contractors telling Aunty that getting the deployment done on time would be no problem. The ABC reports:
“The contractors foresee no problem hitting 6000 connections per day from early next year which would mean NBN Co’s plans are running on schedule … Tony Cotter, MD and CTO for SPATIALinfo pointed out that the rollout was not unprecedented and that when Telstra and Optus rolled out their HFC networks, they were hitting 5000 per day while in the US the ‘Verizon – FiOS’ roll-out was hitting 5000 to 6000 connections per day.”
I thought it was important to link to this article as I had no less than a dozen readers forward it to me over late last week and the weekend. If accurate, it does seem to blow a lot of the doubts about the NBN rollout out of the water; turning the project’s deployment from a case of ‘extraordinary’ into ordinary. If this kind of rollout speed is pretty normal for similar broadband networks that have been deployed in Australia and internationally, it provides a lot more surety that NBN Co can meet its targets.
