The Weekend Australian reported that the National Broadband Network rollout in Tasmania has been "so shambolic" and failed "so abysmally" to meet its targets that urgent political intervention is needed.

The newspaper says TasICT has warned there is "no realistic chance" the project will be completed by the end of 2015 as the previous Labor Government had initially promised.

The warnings come as NBN Co prepares a new corporate plan for the $41 billion project.
