Selling NBN would be ‘a big risk’: Peter Switzer

The Switzer Report founder Peter Switzer says putting NBN in the hands of the private sector, especially now, would be “a big risk”.

“This is critical infrastructure, clearly whoever is going to be in control of it, communications administrators or whatever, there has to be some objective testing of what’s actually going on with this critical infrastructure,” Mr Switzer told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“To put it in the hands of the private infrastructure sector, particularly now, would be, I think a big risk."

Mr Switzer said keeping NBN in government hands is "absolutely on the money".
