This reminds me of Microsoft five year in advance PR product
announcements to discourage competition.
The NBN chappies shouldnt worry too much.
Backhaul will be the issue for the 19,000+ base stations around the
In fact, every one of them will need at a minimum terabit fibre
(Most long haul fibre in Australia (apart from the NBN - Leighton
Nextgen) is 2.5 Gb Stage 3 Singlemode fibre.)
So to actually deliver the service should take about, oh 6-8 years or
Oh did I mention that Australia's international capacity is only 1.93
