It’s been a while since the coalition was pushing for a wireless based NBN, but now it appears they are back on the bandwagon and again claiming that 12mbps is all that’s needed for end user connectivity in Australia.
Yesterday’s Capital Hill program on ABCNews24 featured ALP’s Mike Kelly and LNP’s Don Randall, one of the discussions was around the NBN and it’s corporate plan as released on the day.
This segment can only be classified as an embarrassment for the LNP, as not only is Don Randall clearly technically inept, but his constant pressing “that 12mbps is plenty” and that Telstra’s wireless network will gazump the NBN showed he isn’t even up to date with the LNP FTTN proposal.
I certainly hope Malcolm Turnbull can take control of his portfolio and wheel the party back into line on what’s happening, the NBN is a massive infrastructure project and important to the country long term and when it’s treated with such disrespect it does nothing for the parties credibility.
Of course if the LNP want some real credibility then Malcolm Turnball should run for and take the leadership, but that’s another issue.
