They backed down.

Independent senator Nick Xenophon says the federal government has 
backed down and is now prepared to release a full summary of its 
national broadband network (NBN) business plan.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard confirmed the government would today 
release a 50-page document that was important to telecommunications 
reform in Australia.

"We will be releasing a 50-page document that summarises the NBN Co 
business case," she said.

"I have determined to do this in consultation and joint work with the 
[Communications Minister Stephen Conroy] after a series of detailed 
discussions with the independent senators and of course we are 
continuing to engage closely with the cross-bench members of the 
House of Representatives who supported the national broadband network 
and supported this bill."
