The NBN is a cracking idea and if it ever gets built, in no time people will be wondering how the hell we ever managed without it. However, I’m not sure the government is really entering into the spirit of our dawning Information Age. When you’re spending 40-odd billion dollars replacing the gigantic monopoly that is Telstra with an even more gigantic monopoly that will be the NBN, it is not unreasonable to expect a fair bit of scrutiny of exactly how you’re going about it, simply on the grounds that getting the details right before you start breaking out the yellow helmets and fluoro vests is much less expensive than doing it afterwards.
