NBN review shows time is on Turnbull's side

Turnbull's NBN review will provide little comfort to the ALP but its more rigorous cost-benefit analysis will allow NBN Co chair Ziggy Switkowski to establish a realistic timeline for the Coalition's strategy.

There is more than a touch of irony in Mike Quigley urging his successor, Ziggy Switkowski, not to waste his time with the review of the national broadband network commissioned by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Meanwhile, Turnbull’s shadow Jason Clare has displayed more than a touch of chutzpah (and perhaps some masochistic tendencies) in calling for the first of those reviews to be released immediately.
