The Coalition is in a position to pay back a lot of the NBN’s costs.
It can claim the Coalition has been a fair go, as the Coalition’s original policy for the NBN was a fair bet.
As long as the NBN is operating at a reasonable rate of growth, it is fair to assume that the Coalition will be able to repay a lot.
But if the NBN continues to grow at a rate of about 8% a year, and the Coalition is paying for about half of the project, it’s not unreasonable to expect the Coalition to pay off about half its initial costs.
So what is the Coalition doing to repay its first tranche of debt?
The Coalition says it’s making payments to the Coalition party in the form of a dividend.
The dividend, which is paid to the state, will go towards the costs of the Coalition government.
The Coalition also pays a $50,000 payment to the NBN Co each year, a payment that is part of its annual revenue forecasts.
This is a dividend to the party in power.
The Labor government in 2015 used this money to pay for the Coalition-funded NBN.
The NBN has a fixed revenue of $23 billion a year.
The difference between the NBN costs and the revenue that Labor’s NBN project has generated is about $100 million a year in dividends.
This means the Coalition should be able pay back its first two tranches of debt.
In a recent budget, the Coalition promised to pay its first payment to farmers by 2020.
The first trimester of the 2020 NBN project is now under way.
The Federal Government has promised to spend $100 billion over the next 10 years to upgrade the network.
The cost of upgrading the NBN to the latest standard is now projected to be $23.5 billion.
The Government has also promised to invest $150 billion in broadband infrastructure.
The price tag of these upgrades will be about $6 billion.
If the Coalition was to repay all of its debts to the Labor government by 2020, it would have paid back about $2 billion.
However, it has also said it would pay back $2.5 million in dividends, meaning it would still have about $1.4 billion left over in the bank.
The amount of debt that is due to the Government is more than the cost of the first tranches.
If we assume the Coalition paid the first $1 billion of the $4.8 billion in debt, the Government would be paying back $3.5 trillion over the 10-year term of the Network.
The NBN will be operational for 2023, and will provide better speeds and lower prices for Australians.
