Now the election has finally been decided, Labor can now proceed with their fibre-to-the-home national broadband rollout. NBN Co, the company in charge of the NBN rollout, has to modify their rollout plans due to Labor’s negotiations with the country-based independents. The modified rollout plans will focus on connecting regional areas before millions who live in our capital cities.
This is a huge win for people in the country, as someone who lives in regional Victoria I’m all too familiar with being forced to wait for technology rollouts. Take the new free-to-air TV channels, they often launch in metro areas, before being rolled to country regions months later.
The NBN will still take years to complete, so don’t expect to be connected tomorrow. The place to keep up to date with the rollout is NBN Co’s website, just don’t try visiting right now, there experiencing some serious errors..
