Malcolm Turnbull's claim that a UN report on broadband had undermined Government's plan for a fibre to the home National Broadband Network was based on a narrow reading of its findings and a misunderstanding of the technology being utilised. That is the response from the office of the communications minister.
A United Nations report on broadband infrastructure recommends that government's remain "technology neutral" in national roll-outs as the most risk averse strategy - a finding Malcolm Turnbull says highlights the Coalition's concerns about the NBN.
Opposition communications spokesman Malcolm Turnbull says the Snowy Mountains Scheme was given "rigorous analysis and public debate" over several years before construction began, and could not be compared to the National Broadband Network project as Julia Gillard claims.
