CommsDay reports on a survey commissioned by MyRepublic in Australia. In it around 1000 Australians were told New Zealanders could get gigabit residential internet. They were told this is around one hundred times faster than ADSL and forty times faster than the standard NBN plan.
When asked if they would like this, 76 percent said yes. They were then told New Zealanders paid $130 a month for the service and were asked what they thought was a fair price, 85 percent of the sample said they thought they should pay less.
Perhaps this is why there is a gigabit gap between New Zealand and Australia.
