The Coalition claims that 97% of Australians will get 100Mb per second broadband but instead of costing a massive $43 Billion as proposed by the current Labour Government, the network will cost a mere 6.31 billion over seven years.

The Coalition claims that 97% of Australians will get 100Mb per second broadband but instead of costing a massive  $43 Billion as proposed by the current Labour Government, the network will cost a mere 6.31 billion over seven years.
Opposition Communications spokesman Tony Smith is due to give a press conference shortly.
The Liberal MP claims that Australians will get faster broadband using a mix of technologies including both wireless and fibre.
He said that an Abbott led government will work with private Companies to deliver backhaul fibre networks, fixed wireless networks in metropolitan, rural and regional Australia and improve DSL services.
ChannelNews has been told that Coalition MP’s have already met with Telstra to discuss their plans. 
The proposed $6.3 Billion appears to eliminate any deal with Telstra who were set to be paid $11 Billion under Labours plan to get access to their customers, ducts and other fibre technology.
The Australian said thatnder the plan released this morning, the Coalition is promising that 97 per cent of households will get speeds of up to 100 megabits per second – and a minimum of 12 megabits – by 2016 through a mixture of HFC cable, DSL and fixed wireless services.
A $2.75bn investment by 2017 in open access fibre backhaul is central to the plan, with private sector investment of a further $750m expected under the plan.
The Coalition will also introduce legislation designed to ensure the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to support broadband competition.

 
The Coalition said that Labor’s $43bn national broadband network will be scrapped and a new National Broadband Commission formed  to manage the roll out of the network.
