The Parliamentary Budget Office estimates that the National Broadband Network will have an $A8.8 billion negative impact on Australia’s net worth. The PBO also warns in a report released on 14 December 2016 that NBN CO could experience difficulties with raising enough capital to pay back a loan of $A19.5 billion from the Federal Government in November. Finance Minister Mathias Cormann says the PBO’s doubts are unwarranted.
