Um, could you be more specific Adrian - Which Cities.
In Tokyo, Seoul, Copenhagen and various other selected high speed
networks globally, the delivery methoid is ftth.
In Hungry its DSL - I would have to look up the rest.

I suggest a wonderful book:
Handbook of Research on Global Diffusion of Broadband Data Transmission
 By Yogesh K. Dwivedi, Anastasia Papazafeiropoulou, Jyoti 

And the Telstra bits are available here.....
http://books.google.com.au/books?id=DlFwPrqYZbYC&q=Telstra&source=gbs_ke
ywords_r&cad=3_2#search_anchor


Unfortunately it is a restricted book, however quite a bit of the good
stuff is available.
