What does the telco industry really think of the NBN? Mark Gregory
Over the decades since the early 1990s when the telecommunications deregulation process began there has been ongoing debate about how to put in place a competitive, fair and open telecommunications industry but if the Comms Alliance’s representations made to the various government reviews and audits are anything to go by we may have to wait a few more decades before this occurs. What does the telecommunications industry really think of the NBN? We may never know.

NBN should be all fibre: NICTA boss
The head of Australia's foremost IT research organisation thinks the Government chose the wrong path with the national broadband network by moving it from an all-fibre model. In response to a question on what advice he would give the Government regarding the NBN at a CEDA event in Sydney yesterday, National ICT Australia director of broadband and the digital economy, Dr Terry Percival, said it depended on whether the Coalition wanted a "ten year return on investment or a 100 year return on investment." "I buried optical fibre in NSW for the radio telescope in 1987 and it is still working fine. It’s not an issue. Glass lasts forever. Glass is the obvious solution," he said.

Slow-speed broadband UK
We are continuing to pay a heavy price for the failure to invest in fibre-optic cabling during the economic boom A persistent complaint from many living in the countryside is of the slowness of their internet connection. The expansion of a high-speed broadband network was supposed to have addressed this by now. The last government published a White Paper promising a fast connection for everyone. Rightly, it said that this was no longer a luxury with which to play computer games — but an essential service.

Is the government opening an NBN Pandora’s box? Paul Budde
When in Opposition, Malcolm Turnbull promised a swift resolve. It was first promised that his plans would become clear by mid-2014; he is now talking about December and even that is ambitious. The Minister also promised that during the interim period the NBN would continue to be rolled out along its original FttH plan, but here too the communities involved argue that these promises have been broken – we see an increasing number of disgruntled communities around the country.

The politics of unshackling the NBN from politics Michael de Percy
A long-term industry has been shackled to three-year political terms for far too long. The only way to unshackle NBN from politics is to get government out of the marketplace where it exists. Of course, the legacy of sunk costs will make this difficult. But by the time we stop bickering about the latest lot of reports, it will be time to deal with the next communications technology problem.

Vodafone should buy iiNet before TPG can Renai LeMay
Coalition to adopt UK broadband platform Renai LeMay
The key to understanding the nature of the collaboration, according to the Liberal MP, was a close consideration of the different cable widths used in the two countries’ existing copper networks. Telecommunications analysts have consistently pointed out that most of Telstra’s copper cable was in the 0.4mm and below class, which had delivered a limited and unreliable ability to carry fast broadband signals, especially during peak periods of rain. ...“This next-generation infrastructure is able to deliver significantly lower attenuation rates (and hence broadband speeds), even in the harsh extremes found in Australia’s diverse environments,” said Turnbull in yesterday’s statement. “By taking a reconditioning approach to this brand new platform, we will maximise the efficiencies of state of the art technology in the Australian context and deliver modern high-speed broadband (up to 25Mbps) to many Australians for the first time.”

NBN: Turnbull’s time is up Mark Gregory
Turnbull has failed to justify the Coalition’s new NBN plan, whatever that is, and it appears that the telecommunications industry has decided not to wait for the last episode of the Game of Reviews and Audits to find out if the Coalition government has any clue what to do. Turnbull’s NBN house of cards is on shaking ground and he is running out of time.

The politics of unshackling the NBN from politics
What are reasonable assumptions to make when analysing the progress of the NBN to date? Here’s a few: high-speed internet access is essential for a variety of social, political, economic and familial reasons. Fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) is better than fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) but it costs more. It is expensive to deliver broadband to the bush. When the market works, it works, and when it doesn’t, government should act. And any broadband is better than no broadband.

North Yorks confirms 100 per cent superfast broadband coverage target UK
The great majority of superfast connections in North Yorkshire will be FTTC-based, while some lucky locations will get FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) lines. BT's FTTC lines currently provide top download speeds of 80Mbps and maximum upload speeds of 20Mbps. The speed you actually get depends greatly on your distance from your street cabinet. BT's FTTP lines don't suffer from the same distance difference, providing download speeds of up to 330Mbps and upload speeds of 30Mbps. Trials of vectoring and G.fast technologies look to increase the top speeds possible on FTTC lines are currently taking place. BT has yet to announce if and when these technologies will benefit consumers. BT's FTTP on Demand programme, where customers can pay to upgrade an FTTC line to FTTP, looks to remain business-only for the time being, as well as pretty expensive.

That titbit of unwanted information was buried very deeply within the NBN strategic review report.

If you have HFC somewhere in the general area then you have all that you’re going to need because HFC means ‘A’. And if you don’t have HFC somewhere near you then the Coalition government is going to spend $43 billion to bring another obsolete technology to you and don’t worry we’re not going to test its quality because access somehow equates to quality. The greatest failure of the Broadband Availability and Quality Report 2013 and MyBroadband website is the lack of reality. The measures used should have been linked to access network standards, availability of the world’s best access network technologies and access network quality which is dependent on the access network design rules and implementation.

There are a number of areas of Australia where the original NBN/FTTP has already been rolled out so if your business is located in one of those areas, chances are it will also be available in the homes of many of your employees, and its high bandwidth makes teleworking a snap, so you’ve got a good opportunity to let your staff work from home part of the time.

Turnbull’s launch speech has also raised eyebrows across the media sector for an ad-libbed line in which he paid tribute to Saturday Paper publisher Schwartz noting that: “You are not some demented plutocrat pouring more and more money into a loss making venture that is just going to peddle your opinions.” The remark, coming at the end of a speech which jibed News Corp and The Australian multiple times, was largely interpreted as an attack on Rupert Murdoch and The Australian, which last week revealed that it had lost $30m dollars last financial year. In the wake of social media and blog commentary Turnbull clarified the quip, arguing that he had been misinterpreted and that the line was in fact about William Randolph Hearst, who died in 1951 and who had been briefly referenced earlier in the speech.

The Department of Communications has been regarded as a prime target for more hard line tactics for restructuring because of the previous Labor government’s heavy promotion of the National Broadband Network as a Fibre to the Home as a key economic policy to help transform service delivery and business. While Prime Minister Tony Abbott ultimately backed away from initial promises to get now Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull to “demolish” the massive project in favour of a marginally less expensive and slower Fibre to the Node rollout for the NBN, the Coalition has long complained about what it perceives as technological zealotry over fibre in sections of the media and the technology industry

Launch of The Saturday Paper MT
As we all know those foundations are shaking. The Internet has smashed the business model of those papers by providing a more cost effective platform for advertising. The hyper platform of the Internet of course challenges all media platforms — print, radio, free to air and subscription television included. Chris Mitchell this week noted that although The Australian has 65,000 paying digital subscribers, print still accounts for more than 90 per cent of revenue[8]. Across the Australian industry, digital revenue still only accounts for 9 per cent of all income — advertising still accounts for 61 per cent of income and physical circulation accounts for 29 per cent of income Over the decade to 2013, the proportion of Australians over the age of 14 reading print-only newspapers fell from around 61 per cent to 41 per cent for all News Corporation titles, and from 25 per cent to 8 per cent for all Fairfax publications

A Country Boy comment: "That interview with Turnbull may have been a turning point in the campaign. There had been a change of mood. Hodgman is seen as a light weight who isn't taken seriously in Canberra and who can't deliver. After the NBN roll out fiasco The Liberals are seen as a party that doesn't keep its promises. Liberal politicians like Andrew Nikolic will not stand up and fight. Labor is still seen as out of juice and in need of a rest. Of the other significant players, that leaves Palmer United & the Greens. The Greens' vote won't change much - which leaves Palmer United. Its not that PUP has much to offer; it doesn't. The new attraction is that it is not Labor and its not Liberal either. People are interested. That helps to explain all those Liberal ads attacking Palmer. The Libs are certainly onto it."

A Senate headache for Turnbull's NBN + Mark Gregory
Local government is becoming a vocal critic of any shift away from the original NBN plan and for many local governments the move to NBN 2.0 will mean there is considerable loss of time, funds and energy spent on building local community opportunities based around a next generation fibre access network. The City of Greater Geraldton, which is an early recipient of FTTP, highlighted the positive benefits that FTTP was bringing to the region, forward planning for future opportunities and implementation of projects where FTTP had arrived. The sentiments expressed by the City of Greater Geraldton were echoed by other local government submissions. The City of Greater Geraldton submission concluded by saying: “We are of the firm belief that continuing the rollout of FTTP will achieve a far better outcome for the future. We see continuing to make use of a degraded copper network system is a stop-gap method which will mean we are only delaying the inevitable and this, of course, will eventually see taxpayers pay far more to replace the copper with fibre at a time in the future.” Submissions to the Senate select committee by individuals generally provide outright support for Labor’s NBN....

"A key factor to facilitate a profitable FTTP network deployment is the minimisation of both deployment costs and installation time. It is also essential to minimise the costs of subsequent network growth, since customers do not all take up services at the same time. Fujikura's technology is designed to enable low cost initial deployments with simple and cheap network evolution." Fujikura's equipment allows drop connections to be completed within just a few hours by installers who have limited prior fibre knowledge.

In Sydney and Melbourne, Telstra's 3G speeds are about 5 Mbps.

They should roll out the NBN backwards from most needed to least needed and do a full Fibre to the home, not liberals bs mixed tech. They say they all for future tech yet when they have the opportunity to go Fibre to the home for everyone they fail us as they are with everything else so far."

Deploying the FTTH home entry section using traditional ODN products can be difficult and time consuming. For example, splicing engineers and special splicing tools are required in scenarios where the ODN products need to be mounted on a wall or pole, or hung from an optical cable. For traditional ODN products, connecting each port takes about 35 minutes. For Huawei FastConnect series ODN products, connecting each port takes only 5 minutes. The FastConnect series ODN products support plug-and-play and do not require fiber splicing when deploying the home entry section. Therefore, no special splicing tools or splicing engineers are required.

High-speed, high-capacity networks are critical to our future because they power the world’s Internet and digital economy. For the most part, networks based on 100G technology have become mainstream to address current demands – and this represents a giant leap forward from traditional network architectures and scale. However, it won’t be long before we need to go beyond 100G and even 400G and start to build 1 Terabit networks

It is the long term goal of most fixed operators to deploy Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technologies to offer faster speeds and enable new applications. However, a number of factors impact the reality of this choice in the near term, including the competitive, regulatory and economic environments.

Turnbull embarks on US tech tour
Malcolm Turnbull on FB at Facebook in Menlo Park Renai LeMay - See comments
Malcolm Turnbull: you cant future proof anything in truth, so the idea that you would invest in a technology which will last for thirty years is pretty naive. bettr to invest in the tech that works now and in the forseeable future which means you can invest in btter and better tech as time goes on. this is better financially, time value of money etc, and also gives the optionality you need in such a disruptive tech environment.
Dani Glatz: Malcolm - this is such a disappointing answer from you. Your approach to the NBN has really damaged your reputation in the eyes of a lot of people - myself included. No you cannot "future proof" but you can apply principles of foresight. Any half experienced technologist knows that optic fibre provides a good level of surety as a relevant bearer well into the future. The technology on either end of the fibre will change rapidly - but there can be confidence that data transfer by light will be the fastest means for some time to come. Many, many years after copper cable disintegrates!
David Gordon: Actually, you're not investing in a technology that works now... you're researching technologies that you may use to not achieve your stated goals. FTTP works now, it is proven to work now, and it is proven that it has greater capacity for upgrades than any of the technologies you're investigating.
Wayne Murphy: I doubt they're going to be making increases to the speed of light in the next 30 years, Malcolm.
Paul Cummins Yes his response here is completely disingenuous (or remarkably silly). The great thing about the fiber option is it can be improved simply and easily by upgrading the technology at either end of the connection, WITHOUT having to dig up all the wire in the ground. It is disappointing to see such opinions coming from a supposed expert in telecommunications.
Wayne McCullough: The Coalition NBN plan is just so flawed. I am looking to sell my existing house and buy a new one, and because of the coalition shortsightedness which has resulted in has and has nots as far as fibre goes, I am limiting my search to those areas which according to the NBN home page have fibre enabled. It breaks my heart to see the visionary NBN destroyed for political purposes.
Elliot Birch: Ok so the logic here is that spending 40 billion (Plus all those purchases of Murdoch and Telstra copper) on tech we already have, and then in 5 years doing another overhaul is better than spending a relatively smaller amount over the long term to deliver fibre? What a load of crap Malcom.
Malcolm Turnbull's Facebook Q&A: What He Said About The NBN
I watched Malcolms 8AM Q&A on his FB this morning FB
..Malcolm answered not even a dozen questions (some were replies that you couldn't consider a response to the question given). I'm giving up hope on a FTTP NBN. Looks like we have a true fool at the helm of our communications industry. No business should disregard future needs. Years from now, in hindsight, he'll be recognised as the politician with no foresight. No ability to envision the demands of the future. Sad times for Australia's NBN.
Brett Milton: Given that Uncle Rupert bought you and One-Term Tony the election, and that the only part of News Limited still making money is Foxtel, do you understand why people are dubious about your government's insistence on protecting Foxtel's monopoly at the expense of vital economic infrastructure?

Turnbull’s broadband brochureware falls short of election promise Renai LeMay
However, analysis has shown that the Coalition is not planning to complete the previous Labor Government’s National Broadband Network project. Instead, the Coalition appears to be planning to drastically water down the network rollout, using inferior Fibre to the Node-style technology in many areas across Australia and abandoning up to a third of the NBN rollout wholesale, with a preferencing to upgrading existing HFC cable infrastructure owned by Telstra and Optus instead.
This approach has meant that the Coalition has admitted — just several months after the Federal Election — that it will no longer be able to keep its election promise of giving all Australians access to 25Mbps broadband speeds by 2016.

Broadband Availability and Quality Report: National overview Malcolm Turnbull
Comment: Can we afford FTTP? "If it is completed as per the Liberal plan it will require expensive on going maintanence (due to the copper) and require replacement at completion to be viable at that time, meaning it will end up costing a hell of a lot more than doing it correctly in the first place. Also the costing of the plan involved no costing to buy Telstra's copper and relies on technology that doesn't actually exist. More accurate would be to ask can we afford the liberal parties plan?"

Abandoning the “National” Broadband Network label Renai LeMay
I hereby inform readers that Delimiter articles will no longer be refer to what the Coalition is implementing as the “National” Broadband Network. Instead, Delimiter will now refer to the Coalition’s version of the project as “the Coalition’s Broadband Network” (abbreviated where necessary to “CBN”). ...Through its appropriation of Labor’s “NBN” term onto a very different policy, the Coalition has been able to claim the high ground with respect to the NBN, despite the fact that its own version of the project is clearly a mishmash of inferior technologies pair with an inferior business model, compared with Labor’s own version.
skywake's suggestion: Cheap Upgrade of National Telecommunications Services
Here’s an idea … get behind scenario 4. If (yes, if) HFC can deliver 100/40 as claimed by Simon Hackett then scenario 4, with 63% FTTP and only 5% FTTN, is a reasonable tactical step toward the FTTP network we want. The Coalition is clearly not going to switch to a 93% FTTP roll out. Let’s campaign for the least worst option in the strategic review. The one that does less damage and wastes less money than the MTM. We will eventually get another Labor government that can complete the FTTP roll out. Let’s get as close as we can now.

21st Century Infrastructure (Tony thinks this is roads) The Government will continue to work with the states to build the infrastructure of the 21st century with work underway on major projects throughout Australia by late 2014. In 2014, work on Melbourne’s East-West Link, Sydney’s WestConnex, Brisbane’s Gateway Motorway upgrade, Adelaide’s South Road, Tasmania’s Midland Highway and the Bruce Highway will be underway. The Prime Minister will make the first annual statement to the House of Representatives on the construction status of major infrastructure projects in 2014.

Quigley was right: NBN Strategic Review shows FTTP still cost-effective, viable Renai LeMay - Delimiter 2.0 - paywall
“A close reading of NBN Co’s Strategic Review report published last week shows the former chief executive of the company was overwhelmingly correct: A predominantly Fibre to the Premises National Broadband Network can still be rolled out with only modest cost and timeframe implications. But that’s a truth that nobody currently involved in the process seems to want to hear.”
Seeing the sense in Turnbull's NBN? by Stephen Bartholomeusz: No Stephen, I've never been a fan of half-arsed solutions for anything
Comment: Peter Farley, Wed, 2013-12-18 14:43

I cannot believe how you are happy to spend $41b on a network with no guarantees of performance, unknowable coverage and significant contractual uncertainties.

We do know performance in downloads will be anywhere from 5-50 times worse and on uploads 20-200 times worse than fibre, This is what we will get for 2/3rds of the money if all the uncertainties fall the governments way.

No-one knows how good the copper is, Very little work has been done on the fibre to the node design. No-one has done any real world testing on fibre to the node speeds under Australian conditions where copper runs are longer and corrosion rates are often higher than in Europe or Japan so we can expect either much worse performance or higher remediation costs and further delays in connections or probably all three. The HFC system will need major upgrades and no-one has decided who is going to pay for them.

All this is for a technology which won't support 4k television, does not yet have QOS partitioning for low latency Ehealth or other high value control options. It has much lower final mile reliability so won't be used for monitoring and controls applications for traffic or electricity networks

No-one knows how much more money the Telcos will want to co-operate with the new model or how long the negotiations will take. Many of the costs the NBN have incurred up to this point have been basic infrastructure such as the IT systems and backhaul which will be needed anyway. However it is possible much of the IT system may have to be ditched to accommodate a much more complicated technical and commercial architecture.

At least we now have some knowledge of how FTTP is going to cost, we may have to slow it down or heaven forbid subsidise it from the taxpayer just like we did with roads, rail, water, sewerage, airports, hospitals, schools and the original telephone system.

We have no idea of what the hybrid system will cost but we do know that the proposed system has much less performance and therefore much lower revenue and almost certainly higher operating expense.

This is for a technology which one of the chief BT executives responsible for it says it is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the UK community.

Talk about Labor waste. This is going to make the Alice to Darwin railway and the Victorian desal plants look like petty change

I never thought I would hear myself saying these words but just complete the current contracts and give the network to Telstra. Why waste another $20-30b on a piece of junk. Just let Australians wallow in the past.

It has been a good while since then-opposition leader Tony Abbott said Malcolm Turnbull's job was to "demolish the NBN".... ..And yet the NBN has all but been demolished already. So we are now faced with a $41 billion project in the tightest of times that will not deliver the unique benefits of the 93 per cent fibre-to-the-premises Labor NBN. ....With half the Turnbull NBN being delivered over copper – remembering that most Australians don't live in the clean, dry apartment blocks in which 'fibre-to-the-basement' offers such a neat copper-based solution – the "up to 50 Mbps" promise feels dodgy already. .....Do we really need to spend so much on creating a public monopoly, on addressing regional and out-metro disadvantage, when both these rationales have been lost in the rush to do it cheaper, and sooner?

It will not deliver the promised speeds of 25Mbps until 2020 and even then, it will not reach many small, rural communities. The same review suggested Labor’s scheme of 93% optic fibre would cost $73bn, $29bn more than the former government promised.

The inconvenient truth for the Coalition's NBN ABC The Drum - By David Braue
Spending $73 billion on a fully-FttP network that will, by the review's own timing, be complete in 2024 – eleven years from now – works out to an average of $6.64 billion per year. Spending $41 billion on a mixed-technology network that will, by the review's estimates, be complete seven years from now – and reflects an average spend of $5.85 billion per year. In other words: the average cost difference between the Coalition's retrograde FttN broadband plan and the current future-looking FttP broadband plan – the difference between nation-building and nation-crippling – is just $800 million per year. That extra expenditure would guarantee Australia is at the forefront of the world in terms of communications outcomes. It would give Australians access to cutting-edge services in healthcare, e-government, and even entertainment – which is often dismissed by naysayers but, objectively, represents a multi billion-dollar, tax revenue-generating business in Australia alone. Spending that extra money would guarantee a broadband infrastructure that does not, unlike the Coalition's current plan, need to be upgraded as soon as it's complete.

We cannot call this a “National Broadband Network” any more.

Delimiter is, after all, an evidence-based site. And the evidence today is that the Coalition is not sincere about delivering super-fast broadband to all Australians.

"Unknown" quality Telstra copper 4-6x costlier than FTTP: NBN Co ZDnet by David Braue for Full Duplex
Of all the revelations to emerge from the leaking of NBN Co's confidential assessment of the Coalition's fibre-to-the-node (FttN) based alternative national broadband network (NBN) policy, one of the most problematic for the new government is the warning that any future NBN should avoid taking ownership of Telstra's copper access network (CAN) and the “significant network remediation” it requires. ....“The deployment of an FTTN Network will require NBN Co to access the Telstra CAN in addition to the civil and telecommunications infrastructure it is accessing through the Telstra Definitive Agreements today,” the report warns.

On paper, the Coalition’s $29 billion price tag doesn’t look all that attractive when compared to Labor’s $37 billion, especially when Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is clearly the better technology option. Just how big an underestimation that $37 billion figure is still unclear, but the Coalition will rely on the strategic review and the cost benefit analysis to inflate that number to provide as much distance between it and Labor.
NBN FTTN analysis “devastating” for Coalition Renai LeMay
Turnbull claimed that the document had actually been prepared “more than six months ago” by NBN Co’s previous management for the then-Labor administration. However, Braue has since provided evidence in the form of limited screenshots of the leaked document that it was prepared during the “Caretaker Period” at the request of the Department of Communications and not six months ago as Turnbull claimed. Turnbull’s office has not responded to a request for the Minister to retract the comment. In addition, the Department of Communications has also declined to release the Minister’s incoming ministerial brief either voluntarily or under Freedom of Information laws.

The Rise and Fall of Australia’s $44 Billion Broadband Project
The new government plans to deploy fiber only to the premises of new housing developments. For the remaining homes and businesses—about 71 percent—it will bring fiber only as far as curbside cabinets, called nodes. Existing copper-wire pairs will cover the so-called last mile to individual buildings. Such issues are not unique to Australia. Enthusiasm for near-universal broadband was once widespread, and it is still being pursued in the countries mentioned above, among others. But the ardor has cooled in recent years as legislators in many parts of the world move to cut government spending. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with technology, the public debate is beset by misunderstanding, misinformation, and a general lack of technical knowledge. A rare opportunity for growth and development is about to be lost, and disappointingly few people fully grasp the implications of that loss. For example, in Australia, the Coalition is pursuing a fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) strategy because it would be much cheaper in the short term—about two-thirds the price of the original NBN. But that calculus overlooks the longer-term realities. Copper links simply lack the capacity to support the massive growth in data consumption that analysts predict. Eventually, Australians will have no choice but to replace those links with fiber, probably before the end of this decade. At that point, upgrading to an FTTP network will add to the cost of the FTTN rollout, increasing the total investment beyond the price of installing that fiber today. And in delaying the deployment, Australians will have passed up a unique chance to become leaders in the global digital economy—an opportunity they may not get again.

As some people are well aware, since privatisation Telstra had approached the Howard government no less than three times to deploy a nationwide network. At one stage it was almost identical to the current plan with FTTP being suggested for greenfields (Once called Telstra Velocity, now Telstra Smart Community, the pilot sites are still live) & FTTN for brownfields. This was to cost the government $3b, yet was rejected by the Howard government, specifically Senator Coonan, deeming the plan as not needed & too expensive.

It was also revealed yesterday that up to 80 percent of the copper network the Coalition is proposing to use in their second rate model is being held together by plastic bags and rink-barked cables. The prospect of using this network to connect Australians to the NBN was described as a "fraud on the Australian taxpayer."

Turnbull’s NBN: inadequate, poorly planned & late TheVine
A draft of the NBN Co.’s internal analysis that is to be presented to the Abbott government has been “obtained by Fairfax.” In the document, NBN Co. considers the Coalition government’s NBN plan is, “inadequate for many businesses, is poorly planned and is unlikely to be completed on time”— three of the benchmarks the Coalition used to attack the Labor government on incessantly, in the lead up to the election. The report also stated that the Coalition’s NBN plan would go over the lean $29.5 billion budget, another point of attack they drive hard in the fight against Labor. No one loves a governmental backflip (except to say “I told you so”), but most of the sensible people would appreciate Malcolm Turnbull magically deciding to go with Labor’s FTTP to keep Australia on the map. He doesn’t even need to offer a bullshit reason either—we’ll take it without an explanation! “Here’s that—FTTP.”

Ziggy says we need the "ability to be flexible" - when there is a need to upgrade to Gigabit speeds like that being rolled out by Google in Kansas & Austin now the copper used for the Coalitions FTTN will need to be replaced with fibre, the nodes in the street ripped out & new equipment provided at either end (exchange & home/premises) with FTTP upgrades are achieved simply by replacing the equipment at one or both ends of the fibre. Copper is obsolete for hispeed data whereas the limits of fibre are still being developed, 100 terabits has already been lab tested
