NBN Co consultation

NBN Co has issued its first consultation paper. This deals with important issues like being a Layer 2 provider (not Layer 3) and discussing a very strategic issue which is the location of POIs.

It is disappointing however because its focus on the Layer 2 elements diverts attention from other issues relating to the operation of an ATA port on the ONT, and the choice between an RF port and IPTV. The latter also opens the question of a Datacasting requirement.

The consultation paper is a good start but it is likely to continue to feed the negative perception that the NBN is just fast internet.
