Speeches in Parliament
Ms RISHWORTH (Kingston) (10:24): 1,799: that is the number of residents who have been in touch with me about problems with the NBN since the Liberals were elected in 2013. This number includes people who have waited unacceptable periods of time to be connected. In particular, there are those residents who are still waiting to be connected due to the government's bundling of the HFC rollout. In my electorate, there are 4,500 homes that have been impacted by the delay. Most of those homes will now be waiting until 2020 to be connected. David from Sheidow Park has been impacted. He said: The ongoing delay of the rollout of the NBN to Sheidow Park is extremely frustrating. The NBN currently finishes at my back fence. My mobile has a faster connection than my house!
