Turnbull's charm won't sell the Coalition NBN

The opposition's "mix of technologies" goody bag may work on paper but it might not be as cost-effective as promised.

An ever articulate Malcolm Turnbull took the stage at the Kickstart 2013 forum this week and connected the issues of productivity, innovation, start-ups and the NBN with his usual aplomb. This was a seasoned performance by Turnbull who relishes every opportunity to project his image as a conviction politician. Along the way, he not only managed to berate the fans of the Labor NBN but also drop a few subtle hints about what a Coalition alternative might look like.
