A free kick for Turnbull on the NBN

Whatever the reasons behind Mike Quigley's call for an industry study of NBN technologies, he's looking downright politically flaky. And he's doing no favours to Stephen Conroy.

He reportedly told an American Chamber of Commerce audience in Sydney that "NBN Co welcomes and supports a study being considered by the Communications Alliance into the potential pros and cons of a range of policy and technology options and their impact on the future of the NBN."

And it got worse for communications minister Stephen Conroy, who for four years has been adamant that his fibre-to-the-premises network is superior to the 'patchwork' approach the Coalition wants to put in its place.
