Fine-tuning the Coalition's NBN

The Coalition’s aim of delivering a more affordable NBN could do with a different pricing model for installing fibre to the home and ask Telstra to throw open ADSL2 (not VDSL) nodes.

The Coalition’s aim of delivering a more affordable National Broadband Network (NBN) "sooner and cheaper" is laudable and would suggest that it has attempted to give some thought to the needs of consumers and the underlying technical issues.

However, the current proposal is ill-described and doesn't provide a real choice to consumers. In fact, both plans have an inherent weakness when it comes to giving consumers a clear choice.
