ABBOTT’S CUTS MEAN SOUTHERN ADELAIDE WILL GET A SECOND RATE NBN

Shadow Assistant Minister for Communications, Michelle Rowland and Federal Member for Kingston, Amanda Rishworth today met with local residents who will miss out on the real NBN and will have to rely on a second rate network.

In another example of unfair Coalition policy, Tony Abbott has pulled the plug on homes and businesses right across Southern Adelaide.

Last year, Tony Abbott promised that Southern Adelaide residents would have access to the NBN by 2016. Just before Christmas the Liberal Government broke that promise.

Tony Abbott is creating two classes of people - those that will get the real NBN and those that won't.

Now instead of getting the super-fast fibre NBN all the way to their premises, the people of Southern Adelaide will have to rely on the second rate network.

Tony Abbott is creating a digital divide in South Australia - some residents will have fibre all the way to their homes while others will be forced to make do with the Coalition's dog's breakfast.
