nbn looking to a million lines. Adtran's complete service package and Mosaic SDN prove crucial. As previously reported, Australia's NBN is diversifying beyond an initial dependence on Alcatel. Many of these homes are currently served by a cable network bought by nbn that was so decrepit they are completely replacing it.
nbn CEO BIll Morrow in February wrote, "Operators around the world are excited about technologies like DOCSIS 3.1 and G.fast, which allow Gigabit broadband to be deployed at substantially lower price points and in far less time than it takes to deploy Gigabit services over FTTP – and we will see both of these technologies emerge much more fully in the next few years globally as well as here in Australia."
AT&T and DT say essentially the same thing. Both hope for large G.fast deployments starting in about six months.
