Putting Labor's NBN out of its misery

Malcolm Turnbull’s NBN overhaul will mark the beginning of the end to Labor’s slow-motion rollout. An FTTN solution may not be as fast, but it will bring quicker returns for Telstra and lower costs for consumers.

One of the first of the new ministers out of the blocks once the Abbott government has been sworn in will be Malcolm Turnbull. And one of the first of his acts as the new communications minister will inevitably be to call for the much-delayed latest NBN Co corporate plan.

That plan was supposed to be handed to the government way back in May, but according to Turnbull’s immediate predecessor, Anthony Albanese, last month’s plan remains in draft form.
