Paul Fletcher, former Optus executive turned Liberal technology spokesman, has slammed what he calls the Rudd/Gillard NBN project as extremely high risk and a failure to learn well known lessons from previous telecoms experiences.

A war of words has broken out between former Optus executive turned Liberal MP Paul Fletcher and NBN Co over the average salaries paid to NBN Co staff.
