    Default Broadband in Taranaki...

    Hi.
    I'm from Taranaki, it has just recently had 83% of its telephone exchanges upgraded to support Jetstream.
    Unfortunately, I'm connected to one of the 17% not upgraded
    I've heard that they might bring in a wireless internet available for the rest...
    Does any one no if this is true?
    Also, the company I heard was BCL (i don't no wot this stands 4) and was working with Telecom.
    I've emailed telecom and coucnil but they won't say anything
    So if u no anything....
    cheers

    BCL is Broadcasting Communications Limited. Used to be the technical arm of NZBC, later renamed to BCNZ, which became TVNZ I guess.

    They have plans for Westport, and many other areas.

    Yep that was one not getting done. You could go for Ultra via Satellite. I have it and it is fast one way but a bit expensive. Can get rates downloading of up to 600KB/sec. Normally see it around 100-300KB/sec which is pretty good.

    Poppa John, Taranaki is the (or will be soon) the most connected (internet broadband) region in New Zealand :P

    And

    S'pose I could go for Ultra - but u still need a dial up modem (main reason I wanted JetStart - can talk & surf - and extra phone lines are dear!)
