Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said the Coalition is delivering NBN to the North Coast faster and cheaper than under the Labor plan.
“Fibre-to-the-node is 80 per cent as fast as fibre-to-the home-and is only 40 per cent of the cost,” he said.
“Fibre-to-the-node is being rolled out quicker than fibre-to-the home would be. It is also cheaper to the consumer due to the decreased costs.
“NBN will be rolled out across our communities during 2017 – three years before the NBN is rolled out nationally.
“There is no difference between our policy and that of the opposition in regards to fixed wireless and satellite for isolated communities. The footprint is the same for both models.”
