Well just on the outskirts of NZ largest city I am 500m from the
roadside exchange box thing. The analogue line went out when it rained
and ADSL was next to useless. The national fibre trunk of the second
largest telco goes past the door but they won't tap it for me. I have a
19km line of sight WiMax link now, also on another property that has a
30km WaiMax relay. Voip on both and stick it to the telcos. The national
fibre rollout sounds good but I doubt it will reach me.

First off, I was thinking of the international trunks. Analog
systems are so obsolete that it would cost more to maintain them then
to replace. However, even domestically, the same still applies. I
don't know if you're referring to New York City or New York State,
but even assuming the city, Canada has about 4 × the population, or
16 × that of NZ, but the area of almost 10 million sq Kilometres is
close to 40 times that of New Zealand, yet the analog phone system is
long gone here.
BTW, I've worked in the telecommunications industry for most of my
career and it's been over 30 years since the last time I saw an
analog system. New Zealand would *REALLY* have to be a back water
country to still be using an analog phone system.
I live in the "county seat" of Chemung County in New York State. We
are a city, but not a big one, unlike the "county seat" 50 mile from
here. They are 10 time bigber than ours.
There is a program where the government is pushing broadband access
for most of the US users, but it does not mean that access is cheap.
What I would love to see is fiber to the homes instead of fiber to a
"node" somewhere in the 4-6 block area and then have coax to the
home. That is what here for our cable-modem system. Our DSL system
goes through the phone line, but it can be more expensive. They want
you to have a "regular" non-digital phone line with them before you
are able to get their service. So even if you want a digital-phone
service, you will be required to have a regular one as well. I have
my broadband downloading [only 120 MB/s uploading do to cable issues],
digital phone, and TV digital cable service from the one company. It
cost less this way, but is still cost a lot out of my budget.
I would love to see a cheaper solution in my area. With an
inexpensive broadband service, I could add a third-party digital phone
service and also watch most of my TV shows via the streaming video
services [free mostly, but paid sometimes]. I could cut my budget for
those services down to about a third of what I am currently paying.
What we need is the political boost for allowing competition in our
market instead of having one cable company and one phone company.
There is no competition to keep the rates down.
