Joint Committee on the NBN splits, as National Party member sides with opposition


Tasmania weekly earnings lowest = digital divide

Nonetheless, Tasmania ranks the lowest on Telstra's Digital Inclusion index compared to other States.

6302.0 - Average Weekly Earnings, Australia, May 2017 states that Tasmania has the lowest average weekly earnings, therefore it is hardly surprising that Tasmania is lower.

Labor decision to add speed tiers to the NBN has resulted in >80% connecting at 25Mbps or slower and created a digital divide. Building more FTTC or FTTP won't change that digital divide.
