Parts of the Local Access Telecommunication Network planning problem may be modelled as an Extended Tree Knapsack Problem. The Local Access Telecommunication Network can contribute up to 60% of the total network costs. This paper presents partitioning algorithms that use standard off-the-shelf software coupled with enhanced modelling. Enhancements to the algorithms and empirical results for both the Tree Knapsack Problem and Extended Tree Knapsack Problem are presented.
