Despite going through many different truncated, politicised, budget-affected incarnations, it’s entirely likely that the finish line is finally in sight for the much beleaguered National Broadband Network‘s nation-wide rollout.
“It is a major change from what people in the bush have today. Many don’t have anything whatsoever so the first step is to get them some good basic broadband dependability and then we’re going to look at ways to meet the demands for… people that need more than 20 gigabytes of data.”
NBNCo also plans on signing off on additional contracts with more companies to assist with the expedited rollout in the coming months. All companies must comply with a “three key matrix” of performance indicators – safety, quality, and volume – before they can proceed with an install in any given area.
