NBN blowout #2. Telstra’s crappy copper

According to The Australian newspaper, confidential documents show a $640 million bill to repair or replace parts of the lines to ensure the network will deliver the promised high speeds.

The NBN expects to spend $26,115 per node to fix the copper connections – up from the $2685 assumption in a 2013 strategic review prepared after the Coalition won power.

Sound familiar? Malcolm & co please just swallow your damn pride and admit that MTM is the wrong solution already!
