The Government today released the Implementation Study prepared by KPMG and McKinsey which was commissioned to examine myriad aspects of the NBN project, including the NBN’s coverage, the Government’s ownership, the operating arrangements of NBN Co Limited, commerciality and competition objectives as well as ways to attract private sector investment. In short the findings say NBN:
- is viable
- can be built for significantly less than $43 billion, and
- the Government will ultimately recover its investment on a sale.
