If anyone here is planning on attentding the IrelandOffline
meeting in the Conrad, I'd be very pleased to put together a
list of services offered by NZ's Telecom. They're the same as
Eircom : a formerly national telecomms carrier which was
privatised. However, in a country with roughly the same size
as Ireland, a mainly agrarian background, and with a population
density and size almost exactly the same as Ireland, they
manage to provide free local calls, flat-rate ISP access, and
a solid ADSL solution to almost everyone, while still making
a good profit.
This would be a very nice thing to be able to point out to
someone from Eircom and ask them to explain why they cannot
I can supply exact pricing, statistics and services on request
to anyone willing to stand up and use it at the meeting. There
are also some interesting aspects to the legal obligations
which the NZ Telecom operator has towards the people of New
Zealand, which it is not permitted to weasel out of under any
circumstances. It might be worth also posing this sort of
question to the Minister and/or ODTR, if possible.
Anyone willing to act as a spokespuppet on this?
