The Ultimate Guide to BYOD

NBN Co has made the slightly awkward announcement that it's more than tripled the number of premises connected to its fibre network in the past year, while maintaining its commitment to the multi-technology model for future rollouts.

It's chalked up the connections surge in spite of a management bonfire, several reviews to distract it, and the need to rework its designs to implement the politically-selected multi-technology model.

Since September 2013, when there were just shy of 55,000 connections to fibre, the network builder has added 147,760 active fibre services. That's driven an increase in revenue

At the Broadband World trade show in Amsterdam, the chip outfit's been showing off silicon for G.fast and G.vector kit designers at both provider head-end equipment and for consumer broadband modems. The various chips are touted as targeting “gigabit era” networking, adopting the laboratory best-case performance as the marketing pitch.

The state of support services 2014

US Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) has issued an open letter asking Comcast to make a public commitment against erecting internet fast lanes for wealthy websites. Leahy also wants the American telco to use its market and lobbying muscle to support net neutrality.

Leahy noted that the amount of public comment on the issue has been overwhelmingly against allowing paid-for traffic differentiation online: essentially, allowing ISPs to charge websites a premium to pipe their traffic fastest to broadband subscribers.

Critics say it will lock out startups and smaller biz from competing with wealthy websites that
