LABOR TO BUILD BETTER NBN IN OUR COMMUNITY
Labor has announced a new plan to make it easier for local kids to do their homework, mums and dads to work from home when they can, and for small and family businesses to grow and get ahead.
Our plan for a better NBN will boost full-fibre access to thousands of homes in Underwood, Stretton, Browns Plains, Daisy Hill, Crestmead as well as Woodridge, Meadowbrook, Kingston, Drewvale, Hillcrest and Berrinba.
For too long the LNP has provided substandard access to the NBN in these suburbs and I want to fix that.
Our community needs and deserves a much better NBN, not the shoddy LNP NBN which costs twice as much but is half as good.
Our plan will boost fibre access in our community and offer residents, who rely on copper wire, the choice of having optical fibre connected to their home if they want faster speeds that their copper connection cannot deliver.
Reliable, quality, high speed internet is not a luxury or a nice-to-have — it’s essential 21st century economic infrastructure.
This is why an Albanese Labor Government will invest $2.4 billion to expand fibre access for 1.5 million premises across the country.
Labor will also keep the NBN in public ownership to ensure the company remains focused on improving the network and keeping prices affordable.
It’s clear Morrison and Joyce cannot be trusted on technology.
Our community needs a government that understands technology isn’t a luxury but an essential tool to help our local kids, families and small business get ahead.
