By Geoff Long – [Australia] NBN Co will move back to a model where it connects fiber to every house or apartment at the same time as it rolls fiber down the street – the so-called “build drop” method of customer connections. However, unlike in the past, it will not seek permission from every household before bringing fiber to the building – customers will have to specifically opt-out if they don’t want the fiber.

“One of the things that we have had to take into account of the additional costs of executing all this is a much greater level of communication with the general public,” NBN Co CEO Mike Quigley said, adding that the company anticipated that most households would see that the connection is not costing them anything and would be welcomed. more> http://tinyurl.com/cqzjyv6
