Its an interesting week for the National Broadband Network, with the release of the novel-length report into its implementation that the Australian Government commissioned and then sat on for two months before letting the rest of us see it.
What matters isn’t so much this report, it is the government policy that gets determined as a result of it. That policy, in turn, is a precursor to any real action (and in this context, the work happening to date in Tasmania is simply the skirmish being conducted to limber up for the real battle).
