Fast broadband will create local jobs. This is why a Shorten Labor Government will roll out Fibre-to-the-Premises to up to two million homes and businesses across the nation.

In 2013, Malcolm Turnbull promised that the people of Perth would get the NBN this year.

Three years later and the rollout of Malcolm Turnbull’s second rate NBN in these suburbs has not even started.

The cost of Malcolm Turnbull’s NBN has nearly doubled, and the time it will take to build has more than doubled.

While Australia waits for Malcolm Turnbull’s second rate NBN, our nation has dropped from 30th to 60th in the world for internet speeds.

Only Labor will fix Malcolm Turnbull’s mess and deliver the vital infrastructure of the 21st century to Perth.
