Nothing more important than NBN, says PM

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has used a Digital Economy Forum to emphasise the importance of the National Broadband Network, and the government’s commitment to it.

The first mainland NBN site gets switched on, the headlines scream. In the sleepy NSW town of Armidale, heartland of former National Party turned ALP Government flack Tony Windsor. Whether broadband for the bush or a billion for a hospital in Tassie, Australians now know the truth about politics in this land.

Rural broadband finally gets some bandwidth

Anyone who thought that Australian politics was boring before last weekend is probably now having second thoughts. Whichever party gets to form government, however, one thing is certain: rural and regional Australia are finally going to get decent broadband. The question remains what sort?

An apparent $5.6 billion funding shortfall in the Government's NBN budget has prompted calls by the Opposition for a full Treasury analysis of the costings. A spokesman for Shadow Minister for Finance and Debt Reduction Andrew Robb told iTWire that the Parliamentary Library, which yesterday revealed the Government's NBN budget anomaly, had done an admirable job.

The old canard lies, damned lies and statistics could well apply to the iTWire online poll as to our readers' voting intentions in the upcoming Federal Election. However, there is no denying that they send a stark message to both the Labor Government and the Coalition Opposition.

Just days after the Coalition injected fiscal sanity into the NBN debate, Senator Stephen Conroy and PM Julia Gillard have 'launched' the NBN in Tasmania and have said that the NBN Co's Mike Quigley only yesterday notified Senator Conroy that the NBN would have its speeds boosted to 1Gbps, 10 times faster than the previously promised 100Mbps speeds, in what is the most desperate pre-election spin yet.

We lose NBN, you lose our vote poll tells Abbott

The Liberal-National Coalition could well lose a significant proportion of the all-important swinging voters unless it modifies its plans to scrap the NBN. That appears to be the message of new poll which may be the kick in the backside that the Federal Opposition needs to perform a necessary policy backflip.

The National Broadband Network rollout garnered further brownie points for the Government with an announcement that Primus Telecom has connected its first business client in a remote Tasmanian town. The remoteness of the 100Mbps connection lends support to the Government's vision of the NBN providing ubiquitous cheap fast broadband to consumers and small businesses throughout Australia.

Today's announcement that any implementation of the proposed Internet Filter will be delayed until after the completion of a 12-month review of the "Refused Classification" category has support from Electronic Frontiers Australia, except for the part where it will be revisited after the review.
