NBN Co prepares first copper disconnects


By James Hutchinson – [Australia] The network operator plans to begin a public information campaign in the selected areas — some of the first to get NBN fiber connections as part of the roll out — as it counts down 18 months until most copper services in fiber-connected areas are switched off.

A total of 25,000 premises are expected to be affected by the move, which was a part of the $9 billion agreement between Telstra and NBN Co.

The 18-month timeframe also includes exceptions for business-grade copper services like ISDN and frame-relay, which will be disconnected after three years instead, according to NBN Co’s head of product management and industry relations, Jim Hassell. more> http://tinyurl.com/8v2lpdh
