The man chosen by the Rudd Labor Government to head the NBN Co when it was formed has not held back in criticising the Coalition for what he called "a colossal mistake" when it decided to change the mix of technology for the NBN from one that would be mostly fibre to one in which copper would dominate.
The NBN Co, the company rolling out Australia's national broadband network, the NBN, has bought enough new copper wire that can go around Australia one and a half times, the Australian Labor Party claims.
NBN chief executive Bill Morrow has given the clearest indication yet that he plans to continue working in Australia after he leaves the company at the end of the year, issuing a six-page "white paper" last week in which he acknowledged that the multi-technology mix NBN has suffered in speed terms due to the abundance of copper.
