So exceeding the mid-2016 rollout target is unlikely to be a problem for NBN Co but the devil will be in what’s left in the too hard basket.
While NBN Co’s expanded rollout ambition shows a level of confidence within management that the legacy issues of past are slowly being remedied, for many it’s further proof of how the Coalition government has managed to hobble a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Reconciling those concerns may prove to be an even bigger challenge for Morrow and his team than connecting 1.9 million premises to the NBN by June 2016.
MTM is full of compromises. I’d bet this will cost us more in the long run.
