Considering I struggle to balance my household budget, the chances of me paying attention to last night's events were slim.

In a nutshell, broadband was a big focus for the government, with the promise of $270.7 million to bring everybody a decent level of broadband by 2012. There's also a focus on making the interwebs safer for kiddies, with $125.8 million for "cyber safety measures". So long as it doesn't involve a free filter with a massive marketing campaign, that's fine by us.
