Government steps in before the NBN pissing contest drowns us all

NBN Co CEO, Bill Morrow

The Australian Communications and Media Authority will compel 21 businesses in the NBN ecosystem to reveal data about how they resolve issues in a bid to halt the current blame game between NBN Co and internet providers.

Communications Minister Mitch Fifield said the action was a direct result of government intervention to stem what has been a damaging fortnight for the NBN project.

In case you’ve missed the recent pissing match between NBN Co CEO Bill Morrow and every ISP in Australia this past couple of weeks either party is blaming the other for speed and pricing issues with the NBN.

The Liberal government, keen to save some face in the debacle cum white-elephant they’ve turned the NBN into, have decided to step in and ask everyone for some real info and see who’s telling the truth.

No doubt there’s a little at fault from both sides but with the continual balls-up that is the MTM version of the NBN the public are quick to excuse any facts and rest blame squarely on the shoulders of NBN Co.

Regardless of the outcome and who’s wins this round the NBN and the public of Australia continue to suffer at the hands of political bureaucracy.

Good luck Senator Fi-Fi.
