What Happened With The NBN This Week?

Mike Quigley is a motivated fellow, Tasmania got more of the NBN, towers got mapped out and Joe Hockey waded into a large fight. Here’s what happened with the NBN this week.

That Mike Quigley’s a good guy. Further proof emerged this week, as the head of the National Broadband Network Company (NBN Co) would never accept a bonus during his time at the helm, saying that he’s not motivated by money, rather by a desire to roll-out the fibre network.

Meanwhile, if you’re hyper curious about mobile towers designed to support the NBN’s wireless component are going, NBN Co this week issued a list of locations for the infrastructure in regional Victoria.

Joe Hockey went on a rant about how 4G would outpace the NBN, before (bravely) putting out a lengthy follow-up statement.

As if Tasmania didn’t have enough of the National Broadband Network’s goodness. This week we found out it’s getting 1000 more homes and businesses hooked up to the network.

Today we found out that the Federal Government will be footing the bill for retail service providers moving voice customers from Telstra’s old copper network onto the shiny, new National Broadband Network.
