The NBN litmus test

A recent study shows that the NBN rollout may have strong support for those with access to it, but a lack of consumer knowledge about new price points and plans may undermine the point of the project.

The NBN is emerging as one of the key issues in the lead-up to this year’s federal election. But the project has been fraught with challenges: planning issues and a shortage of skilled labour have delayed the rollout process. Today it was reported that NBN Co is now set to downgrade rollout targets by up to half of those initially forecast.

Given the scale and costs of the project, and the intense debate it has generated, there is strong interest in how it is being experienced and received by end consumers.
