SPECIAL REPORT: Upgrading the Coalition NBN

Building an affordable yet future-proof NBN is a riddle that the Coalition is yet to solve. But there is a way that the network can be built cheaper, delivered on time and optimised for upgrade.

The National Broadband Network is a vital nation building project that has been plagued by ongoing criticism of the network design, cost blow-out claims and ongoing construction delays. Despite its grand ambitions NBN Co has managed to connect far fewer premises to the NBN than originally identified in the first NBN Co rollout plan.

The Abbott government took its NBN plan - promising a faster, cheaper rollout - to the polls and has now acted quickly to reconstitute the NBN Co board and get the critical NBN-related reviews off the ground.
