NBN inquiry calls for an overhaul of its continued rollout and an end to FTTN

A joint federal inquiry into the NBN wants a drastic overhaul of the project, including an independent audit, better information, and a “minimum” of fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) in the rest of the fixed-line footprint.

The findings of the inquiry paint an incredibly damaging picture of the national broadband network.

Sadly almost none of the 23 recommendations from the joint party inquiry will ever happen whilst the Liberal government remains in power.

The joint NBN committee charged with investigation was made up of 7 ALP members, 5 Liberal and one representative from the Nationals, One Nation, Greens & Team Xenophon.

It’s published report, released last Friday just before the long weekend, was immediately rebutted by the committee’s Liberal members (and chair) saying that any changes that were implemented would require new funding.
