Will NBN Co become a Telstra reseller?

Telstra and NBN Co are still trying to hammer out a deal and the final outcome is unlikely to sit comfortably with the industry and consumers.

Listening to Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull, one could get the impression that the remainder of the world has entered into another time dimension and Australia has returned to the 1950s. Talk of copper access networks and Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) abounds and Australians are being told they don’t know what they need now and no one knows what will be needed by 2020.

But did you also know that the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is going to live on for decades and as it gets older the operation and maintenance costs will skyrocket and Australians will have to pay?
