Survey to find broadband needs

A nationwide survey on broadband speeds has been launched.

The survey aims to help find which regional areas are in most need of upgrades.

Federal Member for Flynn Ken O'Dowd said there are many areas in Flynn which have poor broadband.

"The NBN is taking too long to be rolled out and costs too much.  But on top of that, it is not prioritising the areas with the worst broadband today".

The survey is available online at www.fasterbroadband.com.au
