Telstra wins again with new NBN deal

The hybrid fibre network was costed at a maximum of $41 billion a year ago, but in its  2014-2017 corporate plan last month, NBN Co said there were too many unknowns including the incomplete negotiations with Telstra and Optus for it to make forecasts for the final two years of the plan “with a reasonable level of confidence”. 

With the Telstra and Optus negotiations finalised, it remains on course for what Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Finance Minister Mathias Cormann say will be a more detailed corporate plan next year, covering 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Whether they arrive then or earlier, more complete projections are certainly going to be interesting.

Just a hunch, but I’m betting over budget, under delivered and a huge mess.
