The Greens today released a wary statement in response to Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull's push for a National Broadband Network (NBN) analysis.

"The Australian Greens Party Room will consider whether this is a serious bid for relevance and transparency, or another in a long line of coalition delaying tactics designed to destroy the network," said Greens Communications Spokesperson Senator Scott Ludlam.

Turnbull has proposed a coalition private members Bill in order to force an NBN cost-benefit analysis. In response, the government accused the Opposition of engaging in delaying tactics.

Communications Minister Stephen Conroy claimed that NBN Co would submit a publicly released business plan to government shortly.
