My question is to the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Conroy. I refer the minister to recent comments by Telstra CFO John Stanhope that building the government’s proposed national broadband network could take 13 years, nearly three times as long as the government’s promise. I ask the minister: why did the government mislead the Australian people by claiming its broadband network would be built within five years?
