According to Australia’s, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak answered questions on Australia’s $36 billion national broadband network (NBN). “I don’t have broadband at my home,” Mr Wozniak said, to much surprise in the audience. “I, Steve Wozniak, don’t have broadband at my home.”

“I live one kilometre out of the main part of town,” he explained. “Broadband is a monopoly in my town – that means you can get it from a cable company, but I don’t have cable.”There are 50 companies that want to sell me DSL, but they’ve all got to go through the Horizon wires – the local phone company – and I’ve got one of the two worst Horizons in the country. “And so I can’t get broadband in my house.”

“This country is quite spread out, with a lot of remote places,” he said. “I think in remote places, a lot of times a good answer economically is wireless.”
