The Federal Government is set to release the exact locations for the National Broadband Network tomorrow, according to Communications Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy.
The announcement is set to be made in Perth during a joint press conference between Minister Conroy and the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.
“It will actually be the footprint of the National Broadband Network,” he said. “You’ll be able to see if you’re in the 93 per cent [to get] fibre, you’ll be able to see if you’re in the four per cent to get wireless and you’ll be able to see if you’re in the three per cent [to get satellite].”
Conroy said it would give every voter in Australia a chance to see if they were going to be linked into the fibre to let them choose between the Coalition and Government broadband strategies.
“We’re really making it front and centre tomorrow and all Australians will be faced with a choice in a few weeks,” he said. “I think the momentum will begin to build from tomorrow in this area in this portfolio.”
