nbn meets Turnbull’s June 30 rollout targets

Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull today confirmed nbn would meet its rollout targets for the start of the 2015/2016 financial year, although the success appeared to be based almost entirely upon the continual deployment of Labor’s previous Fibre to the Premises model, and not the Coalition’s technically inferior multi-technology alternative.

Colour me surprised.

Turnbull fooling nobody but himself on NBN Co FttP savings

“There is no evidence FttP or fixed-wireless costs per premise are declining,” Turnbull said in a speech dated September 18, apparently choosing to ignore the revelation that implementation of the Labor-era “Project Fox” — a process-improvement program stewarded by former CEO Mike Quigley and enthusiastically embraced by current CEO Bill Morrow — had been reported to have reduced the average cost of a fibre install by around AU$315.

Shocker.
