Tasmania's half-baked NBN future

State Liberal leader Will Hodgman reckons the NBN could cost him the election but the prospect of a full FTTP rollout was taken off the table a long time ago.

The NBN kerfuffle in Tasmania has picked up momentum as we get closer to the pointy end of the state election, with both the state Labor and Liberal parties clamouring for a full fibre to the premises NBN.

While state premier Lara Giddings has made no secret of her aspiration to get Tasmania connected to fibre, the sentiment is apparently shared by her opposition counterpart Will Hodgman.
