The increasingly cowboy operation of the National Broadband Network has today hit new heights in Betoota’s French Quarter, as a 17-year-old begins jackhammering through the brick exterior of a 3-bedroom townhouse.
Benji Biltong, Betoota Heights, says his mates who are still in school are jealous as. Because no one their age can dream of $2000 per week after tax.
“Good work if you can get it” says Benji, who has just returned from smoking billies in a 2017 Proton Jumbuck during his third smoko of the day.
This comes as The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman also revealed an almost 160 per cent increase in NBN complaints over the past financial year.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has admitted it was a “big mistake” to set up a new company to build the National Broadband Network, adding that Labor left the Coalition a “calamitous train wreck” – before he was made Communications Minister by Tony Abbott who hated him.
However, while people in the back of Bourke look like they won’t be getting off dial-up until 2034, it’s the Quiet Australians, like Benji, are fucken loving it.
“This is gonna be the best spot I reckon” says Benji, while jackhammering through the heritage listed facade of a colonial town house.
“Oi kevvy” he says.
“Bring the cables. We’ll get em through here”
“Fucken hurry bro I’ve got footy training”
