NBN adds 300,000 premises to fibre footprint, releases details of full coverage.

The $43 billion National Broadband Network (NBN) optical fibre reach will now
cover 93 per cent of homes, schools and
businesses, extending to 300,000 additional premises. The mooted speed is 100
megabits a second.

In a joint announcement, Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, and Communications
Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy, confirmed the NBN
fibre footprint will cover places as far apart as Weipa, Tennant Creek, Port
Augusta, Albany, Cooma and Warrnambool.

Re: NBN adds 300,000 premises to fibre footprint, releases details of full coverage


what I don't get is this:

why is the NBN in most parts not being installed via the sewerage system?

seems Brisbane Council is thinking of doing it that way.
should save them heaps.

You want to make dirty phone calls do you?

Possibly a great idea for ancient cities with many overlays, but almost
totally  useless here.
 
Useless method in your street. Have a look at the cabling method shown on
their web pages. Now imagine your current system which is likely to go
crumble with heavy rain and imagine that stuffed down the sewer; 100%
aggressive chemically laden water attacking any copper and variably
refracting any light paths.

It might, just might be okay for some runs of NBN trunk cables in the
short term.

Unfortunately, sewage systems are not just places of water and soft
objects, but also get abused as a general toxic waste and anything we can
flush down the dunny or fit down the pipe rubbish dump. Apart from the
toxic environment, any hard object driven by storm waters can do a fair
bit of damage.

1. Brisbane Brisbane Council is not responsible for the NBN.
2. Does Brisbane council manage the sewage system in Brisbane?
3. Any piece of fibre optic cable is not the NBN. Optic fibre in networks
has been around for over 15 years and my SOHO has had it for over 10
years.

Note, given our cityscapes are still largely clean soil, under boring is
probably  a reasonable only installation method.

I always wondered how they would avoid potential problems with
blockages with having cables wires in the pipes.  Also if you have
seen old sewer or stormwater pipes, they tend to wear away at the
bottom. Wouldn't this also happen to cables submerged in constantly
moving contaminated water (ie - the foreign objects in the water such
as shit dirt, paper etc would have an abrasive action ?)

Also how do they plan to mount the cables, just pull them through and
leave them sitting in the bottom of the pipe, (I would think unlikely)
or get installers to go into the pipe & fasten the cable to the roof
of the pipe, (this would only work in really large pipes that you
could get into to do this work, and would be very labour intensive and
therefore costly - not to mention the OHS requirements.)

That isnt even possible with sewers in suburban areas, they arent anything like
that big.

And there are none of those in suburban areas.

OHS requirements.)

And there is the tiny matter of getting out of the sewer at each house in
spades.

because of security, not to mention that maintenance would be a sh1t
of a job

Brisbane have an old sewerage system beneath the city.

Because it makes a lot more sense to do it on the
power poles or by punching it thru the nature strip.

More fool BrizVegas Council.

Nope, it actually costs a lot more except in the CBD itself.

I think some readers of this thread may be misreading what Brisbane Council has
said.

It appears to be based a on google joke:
