It’s been a big week for the NBN, but a tipster has got in touch with an issue that has whiskers and a long tail:

Several NBN technicians in a recent short course told others that the cable cover being used by NBN has a corn component and the rats love it.”

Too corny to be true? We asked NBN and they told us there is no corn component in the cabling sheaths. Time for an AFP raid?
