What Happened With The NBN This Week?

The rash of resignations over the last few weeks haven’t slowed, this week claiming the head of NBN Co itself, Mike Quigley.

Mike Quigley today told the world that he’d be stepping down as the head of NBN Co as soon as a replacement could be found. Will that happen before or after the election? Was he pushed? Will he miss the role? We’re not entirely sure, despite a press conference where we could ask questions of the fibre company head today. We think Quigley has a lot to be proud of.

What we do know is this: not much will change in the short term for the fibre company, despite the fact that it’s figurehead is on the way out. Meanwhile, you can already bet on who will take his place.

After Malcolm Turnbull’s appearance on the ABC’s Q&A program this week, there was speculation that he’d give the job away at the next election, regardless of whether the Coalition managed to take office or not. The story, however, was the result of an over-eager political reporter tweeting an article from 2009 — the first time Turnbull tried to give the game away. People were duped into thinking it was relevant for today, despite the fact that the date stamp clearly read “April, 2009”. Oh well.
