    You'll just see the board stacked...

    with political cronies of the liberal party and ex Telsta and newscorp execs.

      More likely it'll be IPA 'fellows' - they're the really scary ones.

      And they're the ones they've put in charge everywhere else.

    What Australia needs is Simon Hackett on the board. He has consistently identified NBNCo's failings and outlined solutions. One solution (150Mbps free CVC) was even taken on board by NBNCo.
