  2. Ironic, on the day that Telecom cut news groups, the government bares it's
    teeth (after 7 years of being butt-f***d by telecom)

  6. 500 years from now. Buck Rogers can then visit Auckland, and surf using
    telstra clear equipment.

  9. I'd have a beer, but then I'd have to go see my dentist twice in the same

    It'll prorably take a long time for the economics of putting gear in in
    smaller rural town like mine. Never the less, the clock is ticking that much

    What did the Telecom share price do between 10am and 5pm today?

    The announcement was after the close of the NZ stock exchange, but on
    the Aus exchange the price dropped 7% immediately.

  13. Congratulations Gavin and Sandy. It appears your post was the last one
    in nz.comp to make it out of the Xtra news server.

    Wonder if you'll get to see this.

    Well... Actually I heard it last friday (or rumour of it anyway).

    Better than good news though. Think I will have wine to celebrate!

    Round 1 to the .govt
    Ive yet to see Telecom lie down and take it easy, so the battles only really
    begun IMO
    Its a pity there has to be so much of a fight, over something that at one
    point nobody wanted, so the then Telecom picked up as a community service
    Between 1995/1996 and 2001.

    * Waikato no longer main connectivity. Rex Croft not looking after .nz.
    Telecom/Netway got it because nobody else wanted it.

    Ever start writing about something in your blog/diary and suddenly think,
    shit.. Telecom still own the Southern Cross Cable, they will simply create
    a bottle neck there? To slow the other ISP's down
    (Please someone tell me Im way off and they cant do that)
    Shane, May 3, 2006
  17. The Southern Cross Cable has multiple owners. Telecom may well have the
    others tied up contractually however.

    Of course I expect Telecom will try legal options to forstall this?

    Hopefully they will lose.

    the battle only just begun...
