What Happened With The NBN This Week?

A quieter week in NBN news, with the coalition claiming cost issues around maintaing copper in a FTTN NBN aren’t issues at all, Conroy talking cloud and rollouts continuing.

• Cloud computing works better when you’ve got a faster connection — that’s hardly news, but it’s the spin that Senator Conroy had on a report that indicated cloud computing is a $3.25 billion opportunity. [ARN]

• The Coalition’s NBN alternative, using FTTN, relies on a slowly degrading copper network, but Malcolm Turnbull reckons the maintenance cost for that copper “isn’t an issue”. [Delimiter]

• The NBN rollout in one of the first test sites, Armidale in NSW continued with pipes being laid closer to the city centre. [Armidale Express]
