[AusNOG] Darwin Connectivity

If you're interested in terminating in Brisbane you can get (with some kicking and screaming) a Telstra ATM/Frame Relay service between Darwin and Brisbane that goes via their old trunk circuits in Townsville. Townsville used to be a major switching centre/agg point for Telstra traffic in the north.

RTT to Brisbane is less than 50ms in some cases and I'm sure they'd have 4Mbps of spare capacity.

As far as I am aware, Optus do not have DSLAMs in Alice Springs or Darwin: there is no competitive infrastructure there.

Doesn't Optus have DSLAM's in Darwin? They have one in Alice Springs.

Telstra has 4/4 in Darwin... you can get a handoff from NN.

I thought you guys were an Optus partner?
