Analyst: Paul Budde


We are getting closer to the date on which the Minister will announce his next steps in the NBN process. There are plenty of rumours around but they are too disparate to warrant attention. This BuddeComm report explores the best way forward and analyses the status quo prior to the final decision, taking into account the latest developments – the departure of Sol Trujillo, Telstra sidelining itself from the NBN process, the fact that the competition is now sitting in the box seat, and the position of broadband within the context of an economic stimulus package.
