Asking the tough NBN questions

The NBN is a once in a lifetime opportunity which may be wasted unless politicians step up and explain how it will be leveraged.

The National Broadband Network (NBN) is unstoppable in one form or another and the September election will not alter this. If the Coalition wins the election the result may be changes to the NBN rollout plan and technologies to be used but there is no suggestion that the Coalition will wind the clock back to the pre-NBN era. But what does the NBN really mean for customers, government and business and what should our priorities be so that the NBN contributes to the nation as a whole?

That’s the debate we need to have in the lead-up to the September election rather than the current arguments about cost, technologies and how to put fibre in multi-dwelling units.
