Vocus CEO Kevin Russell has challenged the long run federal federal government to rein in NBN Co from its consistent “mission creep” into contestable marketplaces.
Russell also informed the CommsDay Summit in Sydney that NBN Co on your own could not meet its very own organisational reason of “lifting Australia’s digital capability”, and that industry also needed to be able to perform a part.
“For whoever governs in 3 months, be sure to – we cannot find the money for yet another slim, brief-term, unsustainable NBN centered coverage,” Russell stated.
“Instead we require a well balanced strategic sector coverage that promotes sustainable opposition, prioritises private infrastructure financial commitment, and embraces the deployment of new systems which can uplift our country’s electronic ability.”
Russell blasted NBN Co’s continuous incursions into spots of the industry that the private sector previously served, whilst currently being guarded from infrastructure-dependent level of competition by itself.
