Several times a year NBN executives are required to sit in front of a committee of Senators at Parliament House in Canberra to answer questions about their business plan, the NBN Roll out and frankly anything the Senators choose to ask. There’s one problem – they are always making it about politics and not about the people.

So, We decided to create the People’s Estimates. Bill Morrow sat down with Trevor Long on his nightly radio show Talking Technology on the Talking Lifestyle network to talk about the NBN, progress of the roll out, issues with some installations and most importantly to take your calls.

Listen to the full hour above, and hear from callers in many situations that might be similar to your own, or to someone you know.

Importantly, listen to Mr Morrow explain the issues of the roll out, the upgrade paths of the technology mix and the timings of the roll out.

Morrow also addresses current concerns about the HFC roll out, where activations are delayed, in what Mr Morrow describes as “wrinkles” that need to be ironed out, and he admits quite frankly to the audience this may take six months.
