NBN Co paid AU$330,000 to use project-management methodology in six sites, but only used it in one despite FttP rollout improvements.
An unreleased September 2013 draft of NBN Co's 2013-16 Corporate Plan suggests the previous board adjusted for rollout difficulties.
It wasn't too long ago that the Coalition was claiming that it would cost AU$3,600 per premises to build an FttP NBN. With NBN Co savings dropping per-premises costs towards AU$1,000, there's a valid argument that the Strategic Review and cost-benefit analysis no longer represent FttP's costs correctly.
NBN Co reacted hysterically to the publication of an internal trial review that found that FttP could be rolled out 61 percent faster and 50 percent cheaper than in previous rollouts. Here's what the company's Melton deployment trial taught it about managing contractors better.
Labor-hating has become so popular that few bother remembering the real reason FttP was introduced without a CBA in the first place. But as the Coalition crows about a cost-benefit analysis justifying an FttN NBN 10 times costlier than Labor's own FttN policy, it's worth taking time out for a reality check.

Telcos will have to inform NBN FttP customers that in the case of a blackout, the phone and internet connection will drop unless a backup power unit is installed, under a new ruling by the ACMA
Just so we get this straight: when Labor proposes spending $43 billion on an FTTP network it's "reckless spending". When the Coalition spends $41 billion on a hodgepodge it's "money well spent". This, from the government that's putting the 'con' back in 'condescension'.
Technical restrictions mean that NBN Co will not be able to offer its pending fibre-to-the-basement (FTTB) product in buildings where TPG Telecom has already installed FTTB services, NBN Co CEO Bill Morrow has confirmed. The alternatives? FTTP to the apartment – or no NBN Co service at all.
NBN Co will begin rolling fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) services to "key" inner-city apartment buildings by mid-year as it brings forward its multi-dwelling unit strategy in an effort to fight competition from upstart TPG Telecom.
The Senate Select Committee on the NBN has found the government's fibre-to-the-node (FttN) model is "inadequate", criticised the government's NBN Strategic Review for fudging its numbers to support the FttN model, and recommended that NBN Co be "unshackled" to continue the FttP rollout free from political interference.
Telekom Indonesia will roll out fibre to the premises to at least million homes across 17,000 islands in Indonesia.
NBN Co's executive chairman, Dr Ziggy Switkowski, has confirmed that Tasmania will not have its FttP rollout completed.
A town that was promised early access to the National Broadband Network as part of the Square Kilometer Array project has called on the Australian government to continue the project.
The Australian Department of Health has said that it doesn't require a fibre-to-the-premises NBN connection in order to implement its telehealth trials.
Weasel words abound in the Coalition's NBN Strategic Review, which cites an industry report to justify its assertion that HFC is a better investment than FTTP. Curiously, the report actually says something completely different.
NBN Co has warned the government against acquiring Telstra's copper access network (CAN) or footing the bill for its maintenance, arguing that the "unknown" state of its network made it preferable to lease copper access from Telstra as a managed service. Here's why.
Limitations on the products available over a fibre-to-the-node NBN could reduce CVC revenues so much that the government would be forced to keep prices for fibre to the premises high to compensate, a confidential NBN Co report has warned.
Tasmania is hoping to resurrect an old plan to use Aurora Energy's power pole infrastructure to deliver the fibre-to-the-premises NBN to ensure that the state does not get fibre to the node instead.
As if a slowdown in the NBN rollout weren't problem enough, Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull's NBN Co has been hit by lawsuits, subcontractor chest beating, and protracted timeframes for its Telstra renegotiations. Has he already lost his grip on the NBN?
Supporters of FttP broadband have crowdsourced enough money to target Australian Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull's electorate with a full-page advertisement in his local newspaper.
