Labor Shadow Minister for Communications, Michelle Rowland has again confirmed that Labor has adopted the Coalition’s NBN policy.
“I expect our opponents might come out with desperate hyperbole claiming the field trials are a precursor to Labor forking out billions to upgrade the entire copper footprint to fibre. That’s complete nonsense and we have proposed nothing of the sort” (Michelle Rowland, p21, The Australian, 10 April 2019)
Ms Rowland has confirmed the policy change, but has missed the point. We believe her.
