Levels of excellence at NBNCo increase markedly.

Internode founder and warrior-king of old Simon Hackett has been appointed to the board of the NBN Co, Malcolm Turnbull announced today.
Hackett, alongside new members Patrick Flannigan and Justin Milne, join a board composed of Ziggy Switkowski, Alison Lansley and Kerry Schot. This brings the total number of warrior-kings appointed to the NBN Co. board to one.
The NBN Co. is currently undertaking a review of the service in line with the directions of the Coalition government, and will be assisted by the board in its final decision. Hackett is a supporter of the current fibre-to-the-home strategy, and will hopefully bring pressure to bear on the government to continue with that rather than scrapping it in favour of fibre-to-the-node.
Asked for a comment on the matter, Hackett replied that he was “keen to get on with it”, before somersaulting backwards into the open cockpit of a battlemech and blasting off into low-earth orbit.
