UDIA South Australia has recently sent out communication to its members informing them "that Telstra Velocity has withdrawn from the market of providing fibre to the developers". The reason for this has to do with the changes in relation to the heads of agreement struct between the government and Telstra last Sunday.

A proposed seminar for UDIA embers on 29th of June at Telstra house which had guest speakers from Telstra has also been cancelled. Further to this, through my contacts I have been informed that a number of the Telstra Smart Community Development Managers may be "searching Seek for a new job"

We live in interesting times.

Would love to follow this story. Will they be turning over their estates to NBN Co as well. We are all aware they have long term contracts with some developers. Not all these developers want to go onto NBN Co network.

Interesting times indeed.

Do you have any further information on this situation?

I am Currently looking to move into a telstra smart community suburb but would dearly like to stay with my existing provider (who by the way is offering NBN plans).
