Just received this release from Alcatel-Lucent and decided to post here:

Alcatel-Lucent has announced the publication of a user-friendly guide to understanding the potential of ultra-fast broadband (UFB) for New Zealand.

Titled Ultra-Fast: Understanding the Next Generation of Broadband in New Zealand, the guide helps to answer some of the common questions many New Zealanders have about UFB. Like, "What is it?" and, "What will it mean for me at home and at work?"

Shifting the focus away from contracts, layers and architecture Ultra-Fast: Understanding the Next Generation of Broadband in New Zealand looks at the potential of UFB for New Zealanders, in particular within the health, education and business sectors.

"People have said to me, 'what's all the fuss about UFB, it's just fast internet right'?" said Jyoti Mahurkar-Thombre, CEO Alcatel-Lucent New Zealand and Pacific Islands.

"UFB is about so much more than just fast internet. I'm excited not only because it will allow us to do all of the things we can imagine with higher bandwidth like super-high-quality video calling - but also because it will allow us to do things we can't yet imagine."

Students at Pt England School in Auckland, are already leading the way with ICT-enabled learning. Podcasting, blogging, television and cloud computing are well utilised e-learning techniques.

"Today, Pt England School uses a mix of technologies to provide connectivity for students, however with a UFB connection delivered over fibre, the school will be able to take its pioneering learning approaches even further. There will be no limits," said Jyoti.

The Ultra-Fast: Understanding the Next Generation of Broadband in New Zealand guide has been endorsed by the Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Hon. Steven Joyce, Crown Fibre Holdings and the Telecommunications Users Association of New Zealand (TUANZ).
