Jason Clare, shadow communications minister, is still convinced fibre to the home is the best technology for NBNCo to be rolling out. He says the Liberal approach is not focused on the future and it is tying one hand behind our back.

This week’s program also continues the debate on mobile termination rates and Vodafone’s claims that any further reductions are simply a subsidy to Telstra who, they allege, haven’t passed the reduced costs to fixed to mobile callers. Here what the ACCC had to say when we asked if they stood by their own analysis that showed that reductions were being passed on.
