After the recent comments regarding Telecom New Zealand’s plans for the roll out of cabinetisation of fibre, which in turn started an avalanche of comments some of which were pretty vitriolic in their demonisation of TNZ, Ernie Newman from TUANZ has posted another opinion, one that balances a little disappointment with some commercial reality and the realisation that in fact these plans have been fairly widely known for awhile.

While possibly it’s a case of not biting the hand that feeds, I find it difficult to believe the conspiracy theories that revolve around all of this. To me TNZ is a commercial operation that is finding any competitive advantage it can – which is different from being anti-competitive isn’t it?
