Leaked documents today confirm large areas of Ballarat are being punished with a badly delayed and second rate NBN to protect Malcolm Turnbull.
The leaked document from inside Malcolm Turnbull’s chaotic NBN Co reveals that a trial rollout to homes in Buninyong and Mount Helen proved the cost of building Labor’s superior Fibre-to-the-Premise version of the NBN is falling.
The leaked document also shows the time needed to provide Labor’s superior FTTP to all homes and businesses in Ballarat is coming down.
This document confirms Malcolm Turnbull has been lying to Ballarat residents about how much it costs to connect to Labor’s superior fibre NBN.
It confirms there is no need to deny people in Ballarat west of Lake Wendouree Labor’s superior FTTP, and instead force them to wait until 2018 to get Malcolm Turnbull’s second rate copper NBN.
It proves the only reason that Malcolm Turnbull is not delivering on his promise to connect all homes and businesses in Ballarat to the real NBN is politics.
Malcolm Turnbull is so arrogant that he won’t just admit he got it wrong.
He promised his second rate NBN would be built for $29.5 billion—that cost has almost doubled to $56 billion.
He promised that his second rate NBN would be rolled out to all homes and businesses by the end of 2016—a promise he knew was never going to be kept.
Malcolm Turnbull had one big job as Communications Minister – to build the NBN – it is now clear that he was an utter failure.
Instead, Malcolm Turnbull’s NBN has left a digital divide – where some Australians have access to the real NBN, and others are stuck using a decaying copper network.
Only Labor will ensure that the NBN will run on fibre to every home and business in Ballarat.
