Turnbull, NBN Co ignored Telstra real-world FttN speed warnings

NBN Co and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull declined to include advice from the Department of Communications and Telstra that the speeds achieved in the Umina fibre-to-the-node (FttN) National Broadband Network (NBN) trial may not reflect real-world results.

Earlier this month, NBN Co stated that existing premises outside of the hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC), fixed-wireless, or satellite footprints, and those not covered by the existing fibre-to-the-premises (FttP) rollout, would likely get fibre-to-the-node services under the government’s new mandated “multi-technology mix” model for the NBN, aimed at delivering the NBN at a lower cost.

Being that I’m in one of these FTTN Trial areas, you’ll be hearing more about my experience as the trial unfolds. But I’m not expecting great speeds.
