Time to scrap the NBN?

The Coalition’s revised broadband plan leaves the fundamental aims of high speeds and regional access as afterthoughts, but will still cost billions. Meanwhile, the private sector is already starting to fill the gaps.

It has been a good while since then-opposition leader Tony Abbott said Malcolm Turnbull's job was to "demolish the NBN". That rather negative line was unpopular, given that even up to the last election support for the Labor national broadband network was close to 60 per cent.

And yet the NBN has all but been demolished already.
