Speeches in Parliament
Ms RISHWORTH (Kingston) (10:07): It pains me to have to rise again to speak about the failure of this government's NBN rollout in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. If Labor were still in government, over 20,000 homes and businesses in the suburbs of Hallett Cove, Happy Valley, Lonsale, O'Halloran Hill, Old Reynella, Reynella, Reynella East, Sheidow Park, Trott Park and Woodcroft would have been connected to fibre-to-the-premise NBN. Unfortunately, these suburbs and many others are languishing under the Turnbull failed plan to deliver the National Broadband Network. I have had hundreds of people respond to my petition to demand not second-rate NBN fibre-to-the-node but a proper NBN of fibre-to-the-premise. These people in the southern suburbs of Adelaide have sent a clear message that we want a proper internet after struggling for so many years to have decent internet. It is time for the real NBN to be rolled out.
