The NBN is now an acquisition

The NBN negotiations between the government and Telstra are effectively a battle over the price for the re-nationalisation of the telco's core assets. Telstra looks set to reap the rewards.

The negotiations between the government and Telstra about the national broadband network have become, in effect, a wrangle over the price for the re-nationalisation of Telstra’s core assets.

Oh, the irony. The Labor government decided to build the fibre-to-the-home NBN only after Telstra’s then chief executive, Sol Trujillo, refused to bid for the right to build a fibre-to-the-node network, which was Labor’s original plan.
