This article does not infect explain how the NBN went wrong but it's a nice overview of the problems of overreach. I recall that a well known firm of consultants, McConsultants let's call them, produced a grandiose strategy for an eventual fee more or less equivalent the cost of fibering Melbourne.

General non-expert article describing the South African fibre boom. Note the benefits of open access and resulting service and contact innovation.

I never thought I would see the day. Only some 20 years after Sweden. The previous regime at Ofcom wasted so many years.

This type of deal is a foretaste of something we have expected for a long time. TowerCos realising they can grow hugely in open access fibre. Here it seems to be metro fibre but access fibre is next.

It seems that they have passive sharing still in New Zealand and it's not so convenient.
With active sharing fibre owners habitually cluster installs and your active device goes live as part of that process. Then you can pick and choose a range a service providers without truck rolls. This is much better for all parties including the customer.

All of Singapore has open access fibre owned owned by a public trust. I wonder though if that structure allows structure allows for sensible commercial management. This looks like a new entrant encouraging a race to the bottom in price with nothing particularly new to offer.

Impressed by LTE 4G mobile in Paris.

While visiting my student daughter I ran some speed tests in Paris 15th Arr. :

LTE 58ms. 62/18
Fibre (basic service) 4ms. 49/52
Hotel Wi-Fi 32ms. 1.8/0.4

Latency, download/upload

LTE (indoors) download is much better than I expected. It is not peak hour but still, I am impressed.
