BT best provider for 10Mbps USO, says former digi minister Ed Vaizey
Thursday, 18 August 2016 17:01

BT's Openreach is the internet provider best placed to deliver the government's plan for a Universal Service Obligation (USO) of 10Mbps by the end of the decade, former digital minister Ed Vaizey has said.

Speaking to The Register , Vaizey said: "I think if you want the most effective, quickest and likely-to-be-delivered solution, it should be Openreach delivering it without a subsidy from the government."

This week, Ofcom published its response to a consultation calling for input on how the USO should be delivered. It revealed that many service providers do not want to take on the job.

NBN delivers boring, solid result for 2015/2016
Tuesday, 16 August 2016 12:59

nbn TM , the entity building and operating Australia's National Broadband Network, has delivered a pretty dull set of annual results.

The headline numbers are straightforward: there are now 1.1 million active customers (compared to 486,000 last year), and ready-for-service premises hit 2.9 million.

Revenue is up to AU$421 million, and average-revenue-per-user (ARPU) is $43 per month (up seven per cent).

Losses have also risen because of the capex needed to build the network and because of rising subscriber costs.

For the first time, the company has broken out its subscriber costs, which it say were $193 million in financial
