But when we're talking a business with 30+ phone points running over 'oldschool' PABX it's not going to happen.
Actually..... I don't see why it wouldn't be happening already....
Because the lines themselves are now 'Virtual' so all the PABX system goes into the NBN router, not connected to the initial copper run....
Most of our buildings have needed new copper from the street; since all lines are ISDN.
That sounds ok then. What I was referring to is the phone line comes in and splits off to multiple sockets that are all still connected to the outside world, so to speak, so you could set your VDSL modem up on any socket you wanted.
If all the phone ports connect back to a PABX on the customer side of the modem then this is not going to affect FTTN speeds at all.
It's been nearly 6 months since our first site converted with less than 1 down 1 up, and NBNCo keep telling us "They'll get to it", but as I said, no customer focused SLA, so we're expecting within the next 3 years to see someone (and for once I'm not joking).
OK, the town has no roads, and a weekly offroad bus only.
That said, this never stopped Telstra from flying in, within their 3 day SLA;
NBNCo? Well.... still waiting.
Ye NBN seems to have forgotten all about maintenance and customer support. Seems they are totally geared as an installation company with no thought to fault repair/maintenance. Suppose that would cost money and adversely affect their bottom line and rollout stats.
Doesn't matter if those connected have a barely usable or totally unusable connection, you are connected so a tick for their checklist.
Even worse is whatever they used to estimate backhaul in small towns.
I'd happily wager someone who needs all the latest Linux ISO's "Right Fucking Now" is paying for a 100/25 connection; even if he's not reaching it.
Because in a town, with less than 250 residents, Our sites can often see 10 down, 2 up, but spends majority of their time below 100KBps.
Nothing is changing locally (that particular site has 4 PC's in the same room, so it's pretty easy to check), so it has to be backhaul.
