NBN - Is it too expensive?

Recommended Posts

We should have bitten the bullet two decades and more ago, bit late now.

a) Yes, we should have; but b) bollocks - it's cheaper now, but also is now just catching up rather than leaping ahead. "Too late" would be when everyone else is installing long-distance tunneling links that communicate faster than light. So... A long time.

Relative to inflation it's not actually much if anything cheaper at all. glass is about as cheap as it gets, connectors have come down and become easier to work with, interfaces in real terms have remained about the same, avalanche Photodiodes, the core of interfaces remain expensive.

 

It's chicken and egg of course, a nice big order would see them much cheaper.

 

Cheers
