Coalition to release NBN review by year end

Coalition to release NBN review by year end: "The government will refuse to comply with an order from the Senate to make public the strategic review handed to it by NBN Co before parliament rises next week, and has pledged instead it will be released by the end of the year.

Labor is expected to support a motion moved in the upper house by Greens senator Scott Ludlam later on Tuesday to compel the government to table the report by Monday December 7.

The 60-day review, carried out by NBN Co and its new chairman Ziggy Switkowski, is expected to test the feasibility and projected costs of communications minister Malcolm Turnbull’s plans to have 25 megabits per second broadband for every house by 2016.

But a spokesman for Mr Turnbull said the government was not likely to comply with the order and will publish selected parts of the review in its own time."
