Out of the, I think, 3.3 million customers that have the NBN now activated—there are well over 16 million premises that have it available. It's on track to be available to around three-quarters of Australian households by 30 June this coming year. The company has said it's on track to be completed, in accordance with their schedule, by 2020. The project is underway. The rollout on the hybrid fibre co-ax network has experienced some technical difficulties. They've delayed it or paused it so as to get those difficulties sorted out. People that are on hybrid fibre co-ax now, typically Foxtel customers, have a good broadband service; they're not without broadband at all. This just shows the NBN is delivering but ensuring that they get all of the technology right, so that people get the right experience. It shows that they care about the outcome for consumers, and they're doing that, working right across the country, including in the electorate of Bennelong.
