Conroy's NBN rollout timetable is a guessing game

Who likes a good old puzzle? Try this one for size.
"The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, today announced 65,200 Northern Territory homes and businesses will have access to National Broadband Network (NBN) fibre services under NBN Co’s first three year fibre rollout plan."
Yes, but three years from when?
"The indicative three year rollout plan lists the Northern Territory locations where construction of the national fibre network will begin between 1 April 2012 and 30 June 2015."
That's a margin between next week and three years plus three months from now.

So it's just an "indicative" plan, yes?
"Locations where work will begin before 30 June 2015."
That's three years and three months from now.

[See FULL STORY for locations.]
"Summary of three year indicative rollout plan."
Here's that word "indicative" again.
"This [meaning the dark green blotches on the map pictured] is the NBN rollout activity in your area."
Note: It seems the farm areas will miss out. Will they?
"Fibre | Work to commence within three years - we will commence work in your area from Jun 2013."
That's actually one year and three months from now.
On ya, Steve. Keep 'em guessing.
