I can. As I mentioned before, 1.6 million households switched over to faster NBN broadband in the last year alone. To date, over 4.2 million services have been activated across the NBN's six access technologies. More than 2.2 million of these services are connected via fibre to the node or basement. The latest access technology to be deployed, fibre to the curb, is also now scaling up with close to 180,000 premises now able to switch on this service. The rollout remains on track for 2020. In a matter of months, Tasmania will become the first Australian state to see the rollout fully complete, something of which Senator Bushby often reminds me.
