NBN's Technology Choice program proving lucrative

Ry Crozier, writing for iTnews:

Chief financial officer Stephen Rue said that while the primary driver of revenue was “growth of premises activated”, he also said that licensing fees and the company’s Technology Choice program was also proving lucrative as a growing revenue stream.

Jessica Longbottom from the ABC has a company representative quoting has a contradictory quote from an NBN representative:

"The Tech Choice program is operated entirely on a cost recovery basis by NBN Co, it is not designed to operate at a profit," the company representative said.

Technology Choice Program quotes are exorbitantly expensive resulting in fewer customers going ahead with the order. This ultimately results in less FTTP take-up which the government/NBN can use to show that no one wants fibre.
