No NBN fate but what NBN Co makes

By David Braue – [Australia] No matter how you feel about the NBN, you have to give it to Labor: they know how to make it look like they’re doing something. And yet, as the NBN kicks into overdrive with this week’s announcement of the company’s three-year plan, the ambitious targets the party has announced seem almost destined to make liars out of it.

To install 1.17 million services per year, NBN Co will need to connect 3196 NBN services per day, every day of the year including weekends. Excluding weekends will mean installing 4648 services per day, day in and day out.

The Liberals now have to sit back and — as I suggested they do way back in late 2010 — let the NBN sink or swim on its own power. There is no indication yet that it may end up drowning, but whether it can power into the election with its head well above water now rests squarely on the shoulders of Mike Quigley and his merry band of NBN installers — who will, hopefully, be coming soon to a neighbourhood near you. more>
