NBN Co chief operating officer Greg Adcock told journalists at the company’s half-year results last week that he was in negotiations with contractors to build fibre-to-the-node connections.
“We’re looking to start to scale [FTTN trials] up towards the end of this financial year so you can join the dots as to how far off the contracts are,” he said.
A lot of big contracts in place to develop plans for all of the “Multi Technology Mix” cruft. Money that could have been poured into a continued FTTP plan. The FTTN costs are particularly concerning given the life of the solution until it will need upgrading.
