The danger of a looming NBN divide

The Coalition may be keen to deliver a cheaper NBN but could end up locking us into an access divide, that may last for decades.

A friend of mine with decades of telco planning experience under his belt recently decided to plot the NBN POI Rollout Schedule as "premises served by month". Unsurprisingly, the result is a linear rollout, which basically means that NBN Co’s fixed size workforce just keeps pegging away at the build for the next two years, but it struck me that many of us aren’t talking about, the layered (inside to outside) approach necessary for reinventing basic infrastructure.
