Turning NBN Co into another Telstra

The Vertigan NBN panel's first report was expected to shake the foundations of NBN Co but it's steady as she goes for the moment. However, there's plenty here to suggest what might be in store for the NBN.

Something unexpected happened last week. Both sides of the National Broadband Network (NBN) were getting ready for a knockdown stoush but the fireworks never got started. As far as anti-climaxes go the first report released by the Coalition’s hand-picked Cost-Benefit Analysis and Review of Regulation panel led by Dr Michael Vertigan was a doozy.

A quick scan of Vertigan’s covering letter to the Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull left the protagonists bewildered and looking for answers.
