When will Turnbull deliver a full-fibre NBN?

The Coalition may be enjoying NBN Co's rollout headaches but it has some important questions that need answering as well.

The NBN Co has its hands full when it comes to the rollout and the latest headache has come courtesy of a report on iTNews, which suggests that almost 70,000 premises that have been promised fibre now face a long wait. According to the report, 69,500 fibre connections Australia-wide had been removed from the construction timetable and have been redistributed among 37 existing rollout areas and two new ones.

Without getting embroiled in the debate on whether the figures presented in the report are evidence of impropriety on the part of NBN Co, the one thing that’s clear is that NBN Co’s resources are stretched to maximum.
