Posted February 14, 2020 13:00:00As the Government releases its National Broadband Network Information (NBNI) roadmap for the coming year, the Government is now trying to explain why the NBN is not mentioned in the NBNI document.
The NBNI document does include NBNI section 6.1 which states that NBNI is a key component of the NBN rollout.
But the NBN I-notes are not listed as being an “information technology product” (ITP) in the NBN I-list.
This lack of inclusion in the document has sparked concern that the NBN could not be used to provide a reliable broadband network, as it is currently not covered by the NBN.
The Government has been asked to explain this lack of reference in the forthcoming NBNI roadmap.
There is a lack of any mention of NBNI in the first draft of the roadmap, published on March 16, 2020.
NBNCo said that NBN Co has reviewed the NBSI document and found it to be inaccurate.
NBN Co said that the document was produced by the National Broadbands Australia, and not NBNCo.
“It is our understanding that NBNCo reviewed the document on March 15, 2020 and found the information to be incorrect,” NBN Co spokesman, Nicky Williams said.
Williams said the company had been advised that the incorrect information was included in the roadmap.
However, NBNCo did not comment on the accuracy of the information.
An NBN Co spokesperson said that, “NBN Co is currently reviewing the NBI’s latest draft of NBN’s NBNIA roadmap.”
The NBNI documents will be released on February 28, 2020, and NBNCo will release the roadmap on March 12.
