Stuff like counting areas as “construction commenced” when they were only still at the planning stage.

via Janetter for Mac

Fletcher now moves onto the problems they discovered when they achieved government. Mostly it seems to be about over-selling…

via Janetter for Mac

3. Trying to solve problem of remote and regional Australia with cross-subsidies from urban and suburban, which hid the cost.

via Janetter for Mac

2. Seeing a new company, NBN Co, as the way to deliver three very different networks.

via Janetter for Mac

1. No clear statement of the problem that the NBN was meant to solve. A cost-benefit analysis would have clarified this.

via Janetter for Mac

Fletcher is beginning by pointing out the strategic errors in Labor’s NBN.
