$36bn price for NBN slammed – well I’m slamming back


This morning, The Age published an article slamming the cost of the NBN project.

Well, I’m slamming them back!

What a stupid, stupid report. I’m glad that The Age described the outfit as the right-leaning Economist Intelligence Unit.

Of course things will cost more here. It’s called density of population.

And what if we didn’t push ahead with the NBN? We’d be stuck on Tony Abbott’s narrow minded pathway to a slipshod NBN substitute and pulling funding out of our foreign aid programs.

Another reason why I’m find Abbott frustrating, because he is only looking at it for his political gain, instead of seeing the benefits to the nation.
