OK, a few bits from Quigly’s speech:

Quigley — who led the NBN company from its foundation in 2009 through mid-2013 — spoke at an event at the University of Melbourne held jointly by the Telecommunications Society of Australia and the Melbourne Networked Society Institute. His detailed speech notes and associated slides can be downloaded here in PDF format.


Great summary by a commentary to the Delimiter article:

Quigley dropping all these truth bombs is likely to upset and enrage the copper fanboy knuckle draggers yet again.

To spend billions of dollars to build a major piece of national infrastructure that just about meets demand today, but doesn’t allow for any significant growth in that demand over the next 10 or 20 years, without large upgrade costs, is incredibly short-sighted.

Nailed it.

It is such a pity that so much time and effort has been spent on trying to discredit and destroy the original FTTP-based NBN

Nailed it.

And equally a pity that the Coalition has put their faith in what has turned out to be a short-sighted, expensive and backward-looking MTM [mixed technology model] based on copper

Nailed it.

The nation is going to be bearing the consequences of those decisions for years to come in higher costs and poorer performance in an area that is critical to its long-term future

Nailed it.

Betting tens of billions of taxpayers dollars at this time on copper access technologies, as the Coalition has done, is a huge miscalculation

Nailed it.

Just when the FTTN equipment will need to be upgraded is an unknown but given what is happening overseas, it is unlikely to be very long

Nailed it.

While it is impossible to turn back the clock on the [multi-technology mix] it is still possible to make changes to the current direction, without introducing another major disruption – changes that will get us closer to building the right network for the long term

Nailed it.
