The key here is the market is too small for a big player to come in, little players will lack the needed scale and resources to be a meaningful threat.

Among the many recent posts regarding NZT, it was mentioned that they may embark on a fiber to the premises (FTTP) project. Laying fiber optic cable is an expensive project, that typically incurs financing through debt.

I wonder if there are an thoughts about this. As a utilization of current cash flow, NZT is presently paying down their existing debt comfortably, but if they take on extra debt requiring an added load of new interest payments, would the interest and principal payments on such new debt jepardize (sp?) the current level of dividends.

Thanks,
Henry
