Finally - the future of this countries broadband seems to be making a step forward instead of sitting around gathering dust, the Australian Labor Party-backed National Broadband network is another step closer to reality as the Senate voted in favour of an AU$11 billion for Telstra's copper network.
The vote also approves the split of Telstra into both a retail group and a wholesale network group. The House of Representatives will weigh in on Monday - with it looking like all thumbs up from them too.
Will we see the NBN finally? Let's hope so.
