Statement regarding nbn claims

3 March 2016

It's outrageous to suggest the nbn has been misrepresenting the cost of fibre to the premises.

Any claims this is a secret plan are nonsense. nbn actually announced that it has been trialling a possible solution using fibre to the pit in the footpath at its half-year results presentation last month. The Government has given nbn a mandate to find the fastest and most cost-effective way to complete the network.
