Approaching completion… is the NBN good value for money?

Michael McLaren

Michael is joined by Mark Gregory, Associate Professor in network engineering in the School of Engineering at RMIT University, to discuss whether what is being delivered is good value for the money spent.

 

NBN boss Stephen Rue declared yesterday that the rollout of the $51 billion NBN was “well positioned” to be completed by June and would not seek additional taxpayer funding.

“The areas affected by the fires will not be finished by the middle of the year,” and also says the NBN Co is “bypassing” a “large number” of “hard-to-complete” properties in the rush to meet its deadline.
