A fibre surprise for the Coalition's NBN

Extolling the virtues of a fibre to the node NBN is all well and good but delivering it on time could require some tricky manoeuvring from Malcolm Turnbull and we could end up with a lot more fibre to the premise than currently envisaged.

It was inevitable that the calling of the Federal election would return the spotlight to the National Broadband Network (NBN), although the policy positions of Labor and the LNP coalition had stabilised months ago.

But recent events suggest that the coalition’s broadband model, fibre to the node (FTTN) might be implemented less rigidly, especially in areas of high population density, if the coalition were to form the next government.
