Government poised to unveil NBN business plan

The Federal Government is expected to release the full business plan behind its $36 billion National Broadband Network (NBN) to the public today.

The document is expected to shed more light on the cost of building the network and the cost of the wholesale services it will offer.

The Government received the business plan for the multi-billion-dollar project in early November.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard made a 36-page summary of the whopping 400-page document available last month as part of a deal to secure the backing of independent senators.

However, much of the long-awaited business plan's contents has been kept a closely guarded secret by Communications Minister Stephen Conroy.

Mr Conroy indicated earlier this month that he might not meet the Government's aim of releasing the plan in December.

National broadband network to cost users at least $56 a month for basic plan

NERDS rejoice!

Customers will pay at least $56 a month to access the Federal Government's national broadband network, roughly the same as it costs now, but with faster download speeds.

To get super-fast broadband access that enables video uploads in minutes, you'll have to pay about $80 a month.
The plans are likely to be bundled with services like VoIP, which lets you make phone calls over the internet, and IPTV, or internet TV.

The NBN business plan, released yesterday, revealed the Government's ambitious network would cost $36 billion, with taxpayers contributing $27.5 billion that will eventually be refunded.

However, the NBN will borrow a further $13.4 billion from financial markets, beginning in 2015. The network will be completed by the end of 2020 — later than first expected.
