Chorus has launched its Gigatown competition, a year-long competition for public support which will give the winning town access to gigabit speed wholesale fibre services. Which could be quite a big deal, I think. And if nothing else will at least be an interesting experiment.
For those who think “no one needs a gigabit” or “we should all have a gigabit already on UFB”, I present a recent Twitter conversation. Cautionary in some ways for how last year’s standards become this year’s constraints. And how long it can take to improve broadband performance.
