Friday NBN Follies

Down under, the Australian opposition has been pushing an NBN alternative that would replace the FTTH the country has been touting for years now with FTTC – nothing like the old bait-and-switch.  Kudos to blogging neighbor Benoît Felten for flagging this hilarious YouTube send-up of the whole thing:

I especially like the high speed rail analogy they finish up with.

    FTTH currently isn’t necessary. If the copper works, use it. If it doesn’t, replace it with fiber. I think FTTC would be a great phase 1. Keep the loop length between 2k and 3k feet and you’re set with what people need in their homes, anyway. If you need phase 2, then go for that. Surely they have enough pairs available for bonding with people ditching landlines these days.
