The marketplace cannot sort out problems when it is controlled by a monopoly that Labor created and the only competition is wireless plus limited FTTB.

Possibly he understands that as a result of Labor designing the NBN with speed tiers that for >80% of voters FTTN, FTTB, HFC & FTTP deliver the same result.

What do you define as a good standard? If it is fatser than 25Mbps then why should only a small rich minority receive the benefits of the 'good standard'?
