NBN Fibre to be rolled out in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park

Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion today welcomed the release of detailed maps by NBN Co, showing where construction of the National Broadband Network (NBN) will start in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park.

“This is really exciting for local families and business in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park, Nick Champion said. “In around 12 months’ time, people in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park will be able to start connecting to the National Broadband Network.

“The map shows that NBN fibre is being rolled out in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park, which will allow more residents access to faster, affordable and more reliable broadband.”

“The release of this map means that work is starting in this area and over the next few months, we’ll start to see NBN Co workers locally doing the detailed planning and inspection work, and then rolling out the fibre.

“Within around twelve months, construction of the NBN in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park will be completed. This means that families and businesses will be able to connect to faster, more reliable broadband services. A standard NBN connection to the home or office is free - and NBN retail services are available for similar prices to what people are paying now, but for a much superior service.

“The National Broadband Network is about preparing Australia for the future. It’s about ensuring that our local communities in places like Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park are not left behind as the world and our local economy changes.

“From seeing your local doctor from home, to your kids being able to take a specialist class at another school - the NBN will change the way we live, work, and access services. It will lead to a new wave of innovation, and I’m delighted that people in Evanston Gardens and Evanston Park will be among the first to benefit.

“The only threat to this progress is if Tony Abbott and the Liberals get into government. Tony Abbott says he wants to eliminate the NBN and leave the delivery of broadband to the competitive market, something that was a complete failure.

“The choice is clear: vote for Labor and you’ll get the NBN, vote for Tony Abbott and you won’t.
