Barnaby: Aussies promised broadband "Maserati"

But they're getting a donkey.

Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce has compared the Government's National Broadband Network project with promising 93 percent of Australians a Maserati but delivering them not even a bridled donkey.

Joyce also said the NBN plan "could have been authored by a poor pretender to Hans Christian Anderson."

He continued the Coalition line of attack on the NBN, claiming it would cost "every man, woman and child" $2,000 for a connection before "operational costs".

He said the promise to build the NBN was "like the Labor Party telling us that they will develop, build, and deliver a Maserati to 93 percent of Australians next year when so far they haven’t been able to get a bridle on a donkey."

Joyce touted the Coalition's "affordable" and "prudent" broadband network that consisted of a patchwork of wired, wireless and satellite services.
