We want NBN fibre connected to every home and business in Throsby, with the suburbs of the Southern Highlands and Southern Illawarra (Albion Park / Albion Park Rail / Oak Flats) as a priority.
These areas have inadequate and/or limited access to broadband and are at a significant disadvantaged compared to other parts of the region.
We say the NBN is necessary to:
- Enable our businesses to take advantage of the economic opportunities of high-speed broadband;
- Provide our job seekers with the ability to use the Internet to search for local employment;
- Provide our students with the technology necessary to give them the best possible education.
