news Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has strongly denied claims by Labor MPs that the Coalition’s rival National Broadband Network policy would see those in rural areas pay more to access NBN infrastructure, stating that the Coalition would maintain the so-called “cross-subsidy”.
In April the Coalition published its long-awaited rival NBN policy. The policy promises Australians download speeds of between 25Mbps and 100Mbps by the end of 2016 and 50Mbps to 100Mbps by the end of 2019, at a projected reduced total cost of $29.5 billion. Unlike Labor’s NBN project, it will make extensive use of fibre to the node technology (where fibre is rolled out to neighbourhood ‘nodes’ and much of the existing copper network is maintained), but will also utilise fibre to the premises, satellite and fixed wireless solutions in some areas. Like Labor’s own policy, a core feature of the policy is that every Australian will see some upgrade to their infrastructure.
Since the release of the policy, the Coalition has come under continued and sustained fire from Labor MPs, especially Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, with the policy’s critics slamming what many see as a lack of long-term vision in upgrading Australia’s communications infrastructure.
