Australia National Broadband Network Falls Behind Plan for Revenue, Above Plan for Cost

It never is unexpected when a big construction project, especially a project being conducted on a continent-sized area, falls behind schedule. And Australia’s National Broadband Network appears to be falling behind its original targets, in terms of customer activations and planned-for revenue. But some might say the shortfalls are relatively minor.

Cumulative revenue, for example, is down about $18 million, but some might argue that is not so much for a national project of this scope, in its second year of actual construction.

More worrisome is the possibility that the NBN will never actually make a profit, as costs are higher than originally planned and average revenue per account is far lower than originally planned, balanced however by wholesale revenue.
