    TELSTRA has slammed claims the price it would charge consumers to use the
    proposed national broadband network (NBN) would be 15 per cent higher than
    other suppliers.

    A report released by a group that includes some of the former
    government-owned enterprise's rivals for the multi-billion dollar project
    also claims detailed modelling of Telstra's targeted return shows it would
    have a significant negative impact on the economy.

    But Telstra has lambasted the report, attacking it as a dishonest distortion
    designed to do nothing but delay the project's tender process.

    "This is a completely bogus report that has been bought and paid for by a
    bunch of desperate competitors who want one thing only - to stop the
    building of Australia's national broadband network and keep their current
    cosy arrangements," Telstra spokeswoman Kate McKenzie said.

    The report itself also casts doubt on some of the claims it makes - stating
    that "estimates presented may not be precise" and that the estimation error
    in the calculations presented "may be significant".

    Ms McKenzie said the report had no basis in fact.

    "It is a dishonest distortion that is designed to do nothing but delay the
    process," she said.

    "How can these guys know what our prices will be when we are still doing the
    calculations? Why don't they come clean on their own prices?"

    The Rudd government has earmarked $4.7 billion for the NBN project which is
    aimed at delivering high-speed internet services to 98 per cent of
    Australians.

    It was originally estimated the NBN would cost about $8 billion to build,
    but Telstra has said the project is more likely to cost about $15 billion.

    Or they want to see telstra dumped where it belongs and them get the contract.

    > The report itself also casts doubt on some of the claims it makes -


    Nope.

    Corse they may be given that telstra chooses to not make the basic data available.

    > Ms McKenzie said the report had no basis in fact.


    Easy to claim, hell of a lot harder to actually substantiate that claim.

    Because you clowns wont make the most basic data available to allow them to do that, ****wit.

    In fact it REQUIRES that last.

    So that charge to the users of it is going to be higher, ****wit.

    And spending that much just to get a marginally higher speed than the current adsl2+ can do is absolutely guaranteed
    to **** the economy just so a few fools can download DVD quality or better pay per view movies a bit faster, ****wit.

    Given that Telstra hasnt announced any pricing, how can anyone claim it will
    be 15% higherr than others?

    By looking at the price Telstra claims it will cost to build,
    and the return that Telstra claims that it requires of any
    new investment, you stupid dunny cleaning ****wit child.
