NBN Co's rural rollout tightrope

It's not all doom and gloom for those outside the fibre footprint, as long as all of NBN Co's ducks line up in a row.

The 7 per cent or so of Australian households outside the immediate fibre footprint of the National Broadband Network can justifiably feel a little discomfited about their prospect of getting better broadband. But it’s not all doom and gloom -- as long as all NBN Co's ducks line up in a row.

NBN Co may have promised to invest up to an extra $1.5 billion and revised the scope of the technology to deliver the services but it’s still running a very tight race.
