There was a time when it made sense to suggest to the Federal Government ways and means of upgrading the national broadband network to an all-fibre one. But that time is not now, not when the country is battling hard to keep the outbreak of a disease under control, not when the financial aid and plans that deliver it to individuals out of work should be immediate.
The Coalition Government made the right choice back in 2013 to adopt a multi-technology mix for rolling out the national broadband network, ditching a Labor plan to have fibre to 93% of homes and service the rest through fixed wireless and satellite, Communications Minister Paul Fletcher says.
The Australian Labor Party's obsession with neo-liberal economics has doomed the national broadband network right from the time it set up a separate company, NBN Co, in 2009 to build a country-wide network that would be unfit for purpose. Thursday's patchwork approach by NBN Co to filling up the cracks is just the latest indication of this.
