Labour is more confident than ever about its NBN project with Julia Gillard mentioning earlier today that there has been an expansion made to the project which will result in a 3% rise in coverage across the country. Previously set at 90%, the additional 3% promised today equates to another 300,000 more premises being catered to. With this expansion, Julia Gillard reaffirmed that the $43 Billion network is still on schedule and remains on budget.

The Federal Government also unveiled network maps today that outline transit links, fibre and fixed wireless coverage areas. Any premises in the geographical majority that was located outside of those areas can still be connected via 12 Mbps satellite.
