Any time the NBN Co is taking a hammering over the abysmal speeds on the network which it is building at a cost of $57 billion — and still counting — there is a bid to make things look better.
Labor shadow communications minister Michelle Rowland says the announcement made by NBN Co on Tuesday, about spending up to $700 million on creating 240 Business Fibre Zones, including a presence in 85 regional centres, shows that the Liberal party does not have a clue about either technology or economics.
The Australian Labor Party has described as "ridiculous" a claim made by the government that the NBN Co — which released its half-yearly results on Monday — was continuing to exceed its targets.
Communications Alliance chief John Stanton has urged the IT industry to highlight the changes needed in the Federal Government's encryption law that was passed last year, telling a forum in Sydney on Thursday that there was an urgent need "to try to repair this dangerous piece of legislation".
The Australian Labor Party has, predictably, slammed the Federal Government for avoiding any mention of what it calls "inconvenient metrics" in the NBN Co's first-quarter results which were announced on Monday.
Will the inquiry that the Australian Communications and Media Authority has been asked to carry out into the malfunctioning NBN end up doing any good?
The Australian government has given One Nation senator Pauline Hanson a seat on the joint committee on the national broadband network, even though a majority of senators voted against her appointment.
Workers at the Australian Securities and Investment Commission have become the latest group to join the protest against the federal government's proposal to sell off the organisation's corporate database.
Dr Ziggy Switkowski has been reappointed as chairman of NBN Co and a non-executive director of the board for three more years.
Support is growing against the federal government's move to sell the corporate database owned by ASIC to a private operator, with more than 50,000 members of the public and 84 journalists having signed a petition and a letter respectively against the sale.
