"It is a curiously inadequate document," wrote Malcolm Turnbull of the NBN Co Business Case Summary. He’s right. A business case that doesn’t, y’know, present a case for the business, supported by proper numbers? WTF?
At least the document released yesterday – only 36 pages, not the Gillard-announced 50 – sketches out broad timelines for NBN Co’s network rollout and a roadmap showing the order in which retail service providers (RSPs) can expect the company’s wholesale network products to come online. There’s a handy summary at ZDNet.com.au.
