NBN Co CEO Mike Quigley was all smiles as he opened the new "nerve centre" for the NBN. "This test facility allows us to give our customers, the retail service providers, the opportunity to hook into our systems and services, and test their services with ours," he said. "This is a massive machine, and it will ensure that when they launch services on our network, they will do so seamlessly."
He also told reporters that about 3000 people now have services on the NBN, including people on the interim satellite service and people at sites in Tasmania and five sites on the mainland.
