Perhaps old news, but useful to current debate:

> NBN Co may compete with private backhaul providers selling capacity to mobile carriers to boost its commercial returns.
> The NBN Co made the statement after Vodafone Hutchison Australia chief Nigel Dews said the carrier was relying on access to the NBN to reduce the cost of its network rollouts in the bush. Mr Dews was commenting on VHA's plans announced last week to merge its mobile assets into a single network, add 1400 new sites and establish an 850MHz network across 1500 sites.
> He said he was confident the carrier would be able to tear up roaming agreements that allow it to claim voice service coverage of 96 per cent, assuming the NBN located its POIs favourably.
