Vodafone trials fetchtv and femtocells over NBN

By

Vodafone has connected its first customers to the National Broadband Network, in Armidale: a move that marks its first foray into fixed network offerings.
 

Vodafone is trialling the fetchTV IPTV service including high definition movies on demand and is also the first operator to trial femtocell technology over the NBN, using the Vodafone Expand product. Vodafone says it is planning similar trials in Kiama, NSW and Brunswick, Victoria in 2012.

Vodafone has given few details of its trial. Outside the NBN its femtocell is presently available only to business customers and is a much larger capacity product than the Optus offering, supporting up to 16 simultaneous users. Also, it is not plug and play: a site visit and installation by an authorised Vodafone representative is required.

Vodafone has also said nothing about how it is delivering fetchtv. In the absence of IP multicast on the NBN, as yet, this can be problematic.  Internode announced last week that it had solved the problem with some custom technology, but at the cost of depriving the NBN user of 6Mbps of their bandwidth, which Internode reserves for the fetchtv service.
