An NBN bonus for News Corp Australia

A fibre-to-the-premises NBN is a blessing not a curse for Foxtel. The NBN might give equality on access to content providers but that’s where the level playing field ends.

Has News Corp Australia really been waging a local media campaign these last few years against the fibre-to-the-premises (FttP) National Broadband Network in order to protect its local pay TV operator Foxtel?

That’s the charge made by many of the NBN’s backers who claim that News is conducting a fierce media campaign against the network because it will enable the launch of rival IPTV-based pay TV services to compete with Foxtel.
