Windsor: Broadband Was The ‘Main Influence’ In Labor Decision

As confirmed by Tony Windsor this afternoon, national broadband – and in particular the NBN – was one of the key reasons behind his support of the Labor government.

During his conference where Windsor pledged his allegiance, the MP for New England said:

“There’s an enormous opportunity for regional Australians to engage with the infrastructure of this century and … I thought (that) was too good an opportunity to miss.

“My advisers in relation to broadband technology – of which I have many – suggest you do it once, do it right and you do it with fibre.”
