Information about what locations will get the National Broadband Network and when is set to be sent to Communication Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy, in the next few weeks.
Senator Conroy revealed the information during a fiery ABC Lateline debate with Shadow Communications Minister, Malcolm Turnbull. When asked by the show’s host, Tony Jones, how much of the NBN would be built within three years, the minister said information would be released to the public.
“We’re about to receive in the next few weeks that sort of information from the National Broadband Network,” he said. “I’m sure there’s a whole range of information we’ll be making available very, very shortly on some of these key questions.
“We’ll be very, very happy to put it out to the public domain, Tony.”
ARN understands the information will be part of the business case being sent by NBN Co to the Minister and that selected parts of it will be released to the public. But Senator Conroy has previously refused to released the business case in full.
