Questions without Notice
Can I acknowledge that this is Senator Duniam's first question in this place and how well qualified he is to serve the interests of the people of Tasmania. I know that Senator Duniam will be pleased to know that the great cities of Hobart and Launceston are very close to completion for the NBN.
Mr President, good news: the 2016 full-year results for the NBN show that NBN has hit its operational and financial targets for nine consecutive quarters. That is an unbroken two-year period of NBN hitting its marks. NBN did have financial year targets of 2.63 million homes ready for service. Mr President, I am very pleased to tell you that NBN beat those targets by over a quarter of a million premises. NBN also had financial year targets of 955,000 premises having active NBN services, and again there is good news: NBN beat that target by over 100,000 premises.
