What Happened With The NBN This Week?

The appointment of a high-profile geek to the NBN Co board kept people buzzing this week.

That’s right, Internode-founder and now-former iiNet board member, Simon Hackett, joined the board of NBN Co this week, making a nice change from the steady flow of ex-Telstra cronies.
