This is just a general question.
Here in New Zealand we are stuck with one major controller of our internet backbone using copper wire to just about every house in the country.
They are still using ADSL technology so we are all complaining about the speed of our BB downloads (and uploads). (as well as that the contention rates are too high)
Some other ISPs are coming in and offering wireless BB.
But the main Telco here - Telecom - keeps saying this is unreliable and that we should wait for them to install ADSL2 (or VDSL)
My question is
I understand that in some previously un-developed countries eg China, India and parts of Arica, where they never had a full copper-wire network they have gone straight to wireless or sattelite.
Do they have good reliable connections ?
I would love to hear from some users in those countries !
