This will make it even faster to roll out the rest of the national broadband network, and no doubt symbolises the Coalition’s leaner, quicker-to-roll-out version of the original NBN — rebranded earlier this year as a lower-case nbn for a reported $700,000. But why the rush?

The flow-on effect might, and should, mean cheaper internet if you’re one of the millions of Australians still using ADSL or another service on Telstra’s fixed copper network.
