Comm. Minister Anthony Albanese confirmed that the National Broadband Network (NBN) targets are being met, with over207,000 properties now ready for connection.
At an NBN rollout event, Albanese revealed that over one million homes and businesses are, or are in the process of being, connected to the NBN.
The initial target was for more than 340,000 premises to be ready to connect by the end of June, but that was later reduced to between 190,000-220,000 properties.
Albanese promised that any further asbestos issues in connection with the rollout will be handled with the utmost care.
Albanese stated that any time there is a presence of asbestos in any project, it needs to be managed according to occupational health and safety practice.
“This is not an issue that will be dealt with over a day or a week, this is an issue that is dealt with whenever you deal with infrastructure development.” he said.
“Whether it be a large infrastructure project, such as the National Broadband Network, or whether it be someone fixing up a suburban house who wants to change their car garage.”
