Here's the Aussie take on this...
"TransACT Communications Pty Limited is building and managing an advanced
broadband communications network across Canberra. This superior network will
be rolled out primarily following existing electricity poles to give homes
and businesses in Canberra a full range of communication services, including
a permanent 'high speed' Internet connection, allowing the provision of a
wide range of service and content partners."

It's mostly owned by the govt owned electricity/water/sewage/gas utility,
ACTEWAGL, and a couple of other private orgs I think.

I used to live there. D'oh! Meanwhile, I'm surviving on a paltry
assymetrical satellite link. Double d'oh!
