Budde: MTM defenders getting desperate:

news Independent telecommunications consultant Paul Budde has said that defenders of multi-technology mix (MTM) are getting “more and more desperate” in their defence of the fibre to the node (FTTN) model used for the NBN. . . .those supporting more fibre in the network – via fibre to the home (FTTH) and fibre to the distribution point (FTTdp) – are now labelled by MTM pro[po]nents as “zealots, theologians and scaremongers”.

By so doing, they are “toeing the political line drawn by the Coalition government”, he added. . . .

However, late last month, the NBN company strongly hinted that the Federal Government was blocking a switch to a Fibre to the Distribution Point (FTTdp) model, despite the fact that new revelations have shown the cost of that option is coming very close to that of the technically inferior FTTN incumbent model.

Sounds to me like the MTM proponents are the zealots, defending an untenable position.
