- $41bn for a dogs breakfast (copper, FttN, vectoring, G.Fast, HFC, FttP) and
- $43 for FttP
A modern economy requires a ubiquitous network to achieve digital productivity, introduce e-health, e-education, etc. Let's hope that I am wrong and the new govt is right and that its dog breakfast will do the job..
I am very pleased with Malcolm Turnbull’s inaugural speech on the NBN.. For me the key issue was that the review that he has announced is not dogmatic’. He has asked first of all NBN Co to review their operations with the aim to come up with changes that will see lower costs and a faster roll out, within the current parameters of the project, this being a mainly FttH roll out. He explicitly mentioned that he does not want NBN Co to come up with solutions that they would believe are fitting his or his government’s political agenda. He also didn’t appoint some consultants to do this which again could be linked to a political agenda; so in short full praise for the way Malcolm is taking the NBN forward. http://tinyurl.com/mcmwbxl
