The strike this week by Telstra technicians is likely to exacerbate the threatening bottleneck of ISDN and NBN migration orders. Advice to business - act early to avoid disruption.
A shortage of nbn technicians is already causing delays of 3-4 months for businesses in some regions of NSW who are waiting to migrate off ISDN.
Businesses who don't start the process of migrating away from their ISDN lines now, risk getting caught in a massive bottleneck as the September deadline looms.
First it was the old copper PSTN lines making way for the NBN. Next comes the enforced disconnection of ISDN lines which will begin in September 2019.
Small businesses who have connected to NBN are significantly out-performing small businesses without NBN, both in jobs created and revenue generated.
Researchers at the University of NSW say the original model of Fibre-To-The-Premise NBN would have given the Government higher "social returns" than the current Fibre-to-the-Node model.
VoicePlus is among the first to earn official nbn™ Business Adviser accreditation. The award recognises VoicePlus is qualified to deliver a managed nbn™migration service through a team of certified specialist migration experts.
Hundreds of business customers are temporarily - and in some cases permanently - losing their existing phone number when they migrate to the NBN.
Telstra and TPG have begun publishing performance data which allows consumers to compare fixed line NBN speeds with fixed wireless NBN speeds.
Telstra CEO, Andy Penn, has signalled "a difficult trading period ahead” blaming the rollout of nbn for "triggering a step change in the competitive environment."
