Today I launched a nationwide survey to find out what areas of Australia have the worst broadband - so that we can prioritise those areas for upgrades when we are in Government.

The survey is available at www.fasterbroadband.com.au 


Many suburbs and towns are inadequately served by existing fixed line and mobile broadband.  The lastest ABS data shows that 473,000 households are still on dial-up and more than a million households can access speeds of no better than 1.5mbps.

But Labor’s NBN is not the answer.  It reduces competition, will increase the monthly cost of broadband and will take at least a decade to deliver.

That's a decade of being left behind in a global economy that is increasingly moving towards online platforms.

We want every Australian to have faster broadband sooner and more affordably.

Our commitment is to fast-track upgrades in these areas and roll out the NBN according to need rather than politics.

You can help us by completing the survey at www.fasterbroadband.com.au.

 

 

 

 

  

 

Yours sincerely,

Malcolm Turnbull
