‘We’ve come full circle’: Labor declares regulatory reset of NBN

Dec 2, 2022

Advertisement Communications Minister Michelle Rowland has defended the Labor government’s policy to return the national broadband network closer to its original design despite fresh admissions it will not be able to recover $31 billion invested into the project. Speaking alongside Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin, as the pair announced a major upgrade that aims to boost internet speeds for 7 million Australians by 100 times, Rowland said the current government’s policy would future-proof the NBN “I think by coming in, myself and Finance Minister [Katy] Gallagher as shareholder ministers, we have effectively undertaken a regulatory reset,” Rowland said. “We will keep the NBN in public ownership for the foreseeable future whilst we finish this job of making it a better network.” Communications Minister Michelle Rowland; Finnish Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade Ville Skinnari; Nokia Chief Customer Experience Officer Ricky Corker; and Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin at the launch of a new, faster generation of NBN infrastructure that is being rolled out by Nokia. Credit:Dominic Lorrimer Rowland’s comments come after NBN Co admitted in a newly submitted pricing proposal that it will not be able to recover $31 billion sunk into the initial build of the network. Loading Under the new model, NBN Co will charge telcos such as Telstra and Optus much lower wholesale prices, which have been a major point of contention between the telecommunications industry and the industry. The NBN was first announced by the Rudd Government in 2009 and was intended to provide fibre network coverage for 93 per cent of Australian homes and businesses. In 2014, under the new Coalition government, then-Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the roll-out would switch from a primarily fibre-to-premises model to a mix of different technologies. The NBN currently involves six different underlying technologies. Rowland took aim at the Coalition government over its decision to use Telstra’s copper network for fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) connections which she said had resulted in cost blowouts and made the NBN less reliable.
