These numbers seem to be very out of date. For example, iiNet reportedly
had 500,000 broadband ports at July 2011.
Also, I do not comprehend how ADSL dropouts can be associated with an
alleged insufficient number of ports, because I am under the very strong
impression that an ADSL connection to a port is a fixed physical/copper
wire connection. If there are no spare ADSL port in an exchange when a new
customer applies, then they aren't connected and have to wait until another
customer terminates their service, or the carrier/ISP installs more ports
in the particular exchange. IOW, I am under the impression that when an
ADSL connection drops out, when it reconnects, it's connecting to the same
physical port as previously, i.e. some other customer can't grab it during
the drop out.
