The faulty arguments that stifle the NBN’s potential

The idea of government agencies becoming retailers on the NBN is deeply flawed, as is the idea of cutting features to make the cost of Labor's Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) match the proposed cost of the Coalition’s FTTN NBN.

Critics of the National Broadband Network (NBN) are striving to outdo each other in the lead-up to the federal election. As realisation sinks in that the Coalition’s “cheaper and built faster” argument won’t wash with Australians, critics are now jumping on every anti-NBN bandwagon rolling by, and some are resorting to FUD.
