It’s been a year of significant outcomes for the National Broadband Network NBN and there’s no doubt that Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull will be revelling in the pyrrhic victories he has secured this year.
As the minister responsible for altering the course of one of the most significant transformations of a national infrastructure project in modern history, Turnbull has no shortage of critics. But Turnbull is about to cap off 2014 with the deals with Telstra and Optus finally on the table and the last rites read on Labor’s NBN dream.
Since taking office in September 2013, Turnbull has been actively propagating the message of the multi-technology mix MTM NBN being a far better idea than a project that would have provided the majority of Australians with a single world leading access network technology.
Technology Spectator nails it again. what a sad state of affairs.
