Submission + - Australia's Telstra requires fibre customers to use copper telephone (delimiter.com.au)

daria42 writes: Progress is happening rapidly in Australia, with the country's government continuing to roll out a nation-wide fibre network.

Releasing its first National Broadband Network fibre broadband plans today, the telco stipulated that fibre customers will still be forced to make phone calls over the telco's existing copper network. Yup, that's right — fibre to people's houses, but phone calls over the copper network. Progress.
