Australia’s fast broadband network will be available to all homes by the end of last year, Malcolm Turnbull confirmed today.
Saying he was a man of his word, Mr Turnbull confirmed the last homes will be connected about a month ago, giving all Australians access to fast internet as promised.
“Our plan was always to deliver NBN more affordably and sooner. So if you’re still on the old system now, well then you can look forward to super fast internet by the end of last year at the latest,” Mr Turnbull said.
Turnbull, who invented the internet in the late 1990s, said it would be worth the wait. “Nothing evokes the concept of speed quite like five meters of copper wire connected to your home”.
