[AusNOG] Consumer HD Teleconferencing

Don't mean to reignite the NBN debate, but I just saw this today and think
this is quite relevant, as HD video conferencing is being pitched as one of
the major selling points for fibre broadband:


In particular, here are the bandwidth requirements:

"To fully enjoy your ūmi experience, your broadband download and upload
speed must be:

   - Minimum 1.5 Mbps upload and 1.5 mbps download speeds for 720p
   - Minimum 3.5 Mbps upload and 3.5 mbps download speeds for 1080p"

So, there you have it. Today's "standard" 1Mbit/s upstream (which,
incidentally, isn't "standard" at all on cable plans) isn't going to cut it.
At least not for this solution (which, by the way, also appears to be
compatible with google talk).
