Turnbull's NBN smackdown

NBN CO's failure to connect new housing estates to the network further illustrates the weaknesses of the entire rollout process and the company's inability to stick to its own plan.

The National Broadband Network’s third progress report to Parliament confirms its dismal failure to deliver timely broadband and communications to Australians living in new housing estates.

The report reveals only 110 premises in new developments were actually connected to the NBN at the end of last year.

Yet NBN Co’s 2011-2013 Corporate Plan states that by June there will be 132,000 premises in such areas using the network.
