NBN may go down to the wire

The plan for the NBN unveiled yesterday doesn't necessarily mean the rollout will be completed, and even assuming it is there are likely cost blowouts and lower-than-anticipated returns looming.

Once the $11 billion-plus deal between NBN Co, Telstra and the federal government was cleared by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission last month, the path was clear for the acceleration of the national broadband network that NBN Co’s Mike Quigley unveiled yesterday. It doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that the rollout will actually be completed.
