Minister says Coalition would have done NBN differently

The communications minister says they would have handled the conception of the NBN differently as about 35,000 new customers connect to the network weekly.

More than 10 million premises are able to access the NBN today with the rollout expected to be completed next year.

Labor hatched the plan but Communications Minister Paul Fletcher tells Ray Hadley they would have done things differently.

“One of the things we would have done differently, I think, is that you would not have had a complete scrapping of networks that were only a few years old.

“We would not have been as wasteful as Labor.”
