Disaggregation in the short term would potentially delay the rollout and be a distraction for NBN Co’s management, the government said.
“However”, the document adds “optionality for future restructuring or disaggregation should be retained, to provide future governments with greater policy and financial flexibility.”
“To this end, NBN Co will be required to maintain separate accounts for its satellite, fixed wireless, FTTx, HFC and transit networks,” it states.
It would have been better if the current government had just paused all NBN operations while they were in power. What a mess.
