I am pleased that Bayles will receive high-speed, broadband internet within 12 months as construction commences on the National Broadband Network.
The Coalition Government’s efforts to speed up the NBN rollout are paying off for residents and businesses in Bayles and surrounds as work begins to connect hundreds of premises.
It is expected that broadband and telephone services will be able to be connected over the NBN from phone companies and internet providers within 12 months.
I have had many residents come to me with concerns over inadequate access to broadband internet or download speeds as slow as dial-up.
In this era where we rely on the internet for everything from paying bills to completing further study, having fast and reliable internet is imperative.
Installation of the NBN at Bayles will mean residents, businesses and local organisations will be able to operate more efficiently.
Labor had six years in office and delivered nothing for Bayles. Since the election, the nationwide number of active broadband connections on the NBN has more than doubled.
Since the Coalition Government took office, trials have started to test other technologies that will dramatically lower the cost and time it will take to deliver fast broadband to all Australians.
The Government’s changes to the NBN rollout will save $32 billion, will see upgrades delivered four years sooner than under Labor and avoid Internet retail bills increasing by up to $43 a month.
Suburbs and towns with the worst broadband service will get priority under NBN Co’s new rollout strategy.
