Yes, and nowhere does it say another $8 will be the difference between contention and no contention. It says an extra $9 a user will increase the available total bandwidth from 1 to 3mbps. So 3x the bandwidth, great; so instead of 5mbps peak hour it's 15. It's better, it's not the 100 people are paying for.

"He said assuming a carrier was dimensioning just less than 1000kb (CVC allocation per client), then they would be paying at a rate of $15 per 1000kb, which worked out to $15.00 per client.

"If they were to raise this to 3000kb, they would be paying just $8.25 per 1000kb, so $24.75 per client - an increase of just $9.75. So to increase the amount of CVC by three times would cost just $9.75 per month to the carrier."

There's also a lot of assumption in there.

are you getting 1Mbps now during peak hour? no, you're getting considerably more, because not everyone downloads at the same time. what we are talking about is average peak usage.

these people run ISP businesses. they know their business, and well.

I did "Pre-Order" my connection.
And my area is supposed to be switched on tomorrow?

So hopefully tomorrow is the NBN day.

Can't wait to leave behind the 5Mbps world, I am over it.

Yup. Launtel is the juggernaut of the ISP business.

The problem is, the 'real' ISPs are already buying in as much bulk as they can to get the prices rock bottom; but they STILL put in more customers than the CVC can take, because it's how they make a profit.

Maybe a small ISP has an option of a few bucks a user more for more bandwidth, but you can bet your bottom dollar companies like TPG (who own iiNet, Internode etc) are already buying for the cheapest price.

You also missed my point entirely. I wasn't saying people get 1 mbps now; but even if you were right, 3x certainly doesn't guarantee you'll get the speed you pay for. If, during peak hour, you get 1/3 or less of the speed of your plan, 3x still won't deliver full speed.

At the risk of back seat modding, the CVC derails detract from the thread because they go nowhere, repeatedly. The technical posts about actual VDSL connections and the connection process are really informative and interesting.
