I find the education and transparent government argument
for the NBN compelling.

However, support from a purveyor of technology, stating that
businesses need to exploit technology, is a week basis for
building the NBN. Bell's argument seems to be the kind that
lead to the NSW Government prioritising investment in the
failed Lane Cove and Cross City Tunnels over public transport.
