The NBN Co's continuing bid to placate regulators, retailers and consumer organisations means its financial worries are far from over, independent telecommunications consultant Paul Budde says.
Not all non connections are capable of delivering the maximum speeds of higher speed NBN plans, and Telstra has apologised for not communicating this properly in the past, and said "we have made significant improvements to how we manage communicating nbn speed information to our customers", so what else does Telstra's California-based global connectivity and platforms exec, Sanjay Nayak have to say about it all?
Selling the NBN Co to a private entity as a monopoly would be the worst way to ensure that the network is upgraded, a network expert says, adding that if the definition of insanity is to do the same thing repeatedly and expect different results, then privatising NBN Co as a monopoly would definitely qualify.

Over the years, blame has been laid on various individuals and organisations for the fiasco that is known as the national broadband network. But we've neglected to turn the blowtorch on one party that has played a big role in things turning out this way.
Optus has become the second telco to offer compensation to its customers on certain NBN plans, with about 8700 users to be offered "remedies" for being misled about the maximum speeds they could achieve.
The costs of installing the various technologies that are part of the national broadband network have stayed more or less static since the last quarter, according to figures released by NBN Co today.
