The NBN's Asian imperative

When politicians add up the benefits of the NBN, they should also consider our Asian neighbours and their thirst for knowledge and growth. By 2020 Asian connectedness could be a major driver of GDP.

The Federal Opposition’s position on the NBN is well known: it’s frequently the subject of door-stops by Opposition leader, Tony Abbott, and more lengthy and considered statements by Malcolm Turnbull.  

Joe Hockey’s recent comments that the national broadband network was Australia’s biggest off-budget expenditure takes a more nuanced position, but he refuses to see cost of the NBN as an investment in infrastructure.
