NBN cost-benefit arithmetic might not add up

The panel conducting the independent cost-benefit analysis and regulatory review of the NBN is set to deliver its report to the Coalition. So what will it contain? And more importantly, what will be missing?

In about two weeks one of the biggest missing pieces of the Coalition government’s National Broadband Network (NBN) puzzle will see the light of day. The panel conducting the independent cost-benefit analysis and review of regulation of the NBN, headed by Dr Michael Vertigan, is widely expected to deliver an outcome that should be palatable to the Coalition, however, just what it intends for the long-term health of the network and NBN Co remains to be seen.
