Opposition launches broadband survey
The Federal Opposition has launched a nationwide broadband survey aimed at showing Australians just how fast their existing fixed line and mobile broadband services are.
The release of the survey forms part of the ongoing brawl between the Opposition and the Federal Government over the viability of the National Broadband Network.
“Many suburbs and towns are inadequately served by existing fixed line and mobile broadband. But Labor’s NBN is not the answer. It reduces competition, will increase the monthly cost of broadband and is, for many Australian households, many years in the future,” Mr Turnbull said in a statement.
Without outlining any potential policy, Mr Turnbull vaguely promised to ‘encourage competition instead of stamping it out’ and leveraging existing infrastructure.
