Primus CEO: Shutting down copper is a really dumb thing to do

Shutting down the copper network as part of the National Broadband Network (NBN) plan is dumb and a fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) model would work better than fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), according to Primus Telecom CEO, Tom Mazerski.

He took over the role in August after CEO Ravi Bhatia announced his retirement .

Mazerski has a background in economics and has been in the telecommunications industry for 20 years. He spent most of his career in North America and was a long-time employee of AT&T.

One of the reasons he decided to take on the Primus job in Australia was because of the NBN. But while he agreed with the creation of a ubiquitous open access network, Mazerski is opposed to how the Government and NBN Co plans to achieve this goal.
