Can you help chip in to send our message to Malcolm Turnbull by buying an ad in his local newspaper?
Saving The NBN Campaign

Almost $40,000 from nearly 2000 people in just three days - the ad's going to happen!

We’re going to get ads in other papers too - we’re currently working out where we can get the best placements - in the meantime, please keep contributing so we can build a campaign that targets new marginal seat MPs as well as Mr Turnbull himself.  

The National Broadband network should provide internet services available 'equally' to all Australians, we think by increasing our influence in the government and democracy we can achieve this.

Let’s keep fighting for a Fibre to the Premises future.


NOTE: Donations are in USD (US dollars)


The majority of Australians support fibre to the premises; it’s better for business, regional Australians, and people of every political stripe. Help us launch an advertising campaign to show Malcolm Turnbull he must hear us on this.

Right now, Malcolm Turnbull’s conducting a major review of the NBN - it’s a critical time where he’s thinking through his options. Initially, he only backed fibre to the node, but he’s now saying he's open to a range of technologies. This shows he is listening, a little at least, and we have a window to influence his decision.

Imagine him waking up and seeing our message - that Australians support an FTTP NBN - on the front of his local newspaper in the middle of his driveway. On the way to the office, it’ll be in front of every door he passes, and by the time he gets there - it’ll be in thousands of households across his electorate.  Before his first appointment, he’ll have seen clearly that thousands of Australians are asking for him to get this right.

Already over a quarter of a million people have signed the largest change.org petition in Australia asking Malcolm Turnbull to listen -- and every major poll sends the same message too. To deliver a NBN that all Australians can access and not just the privileged, we need it to be done properly. This means ensuring an NBN that delivers fibre to the premises. To do that, we need to show the Communications Minister that we’re serious about this, and that we’re not just asking - we’re acting.

Can you help chip in to our campaign to get advertising in Malcolm Turnbull’s local newspaper -- the Wentworth Courier? Every little bit will help us get closer to sending Malcolm Turnbull the message on behalf of Australia.

If we can fundraise enough to deliver what we've planned, we can show Malcolm Turnbull that the Australian people are not going to give up on this: and that getting into government shouldn't mean closing your doors to voters.

Thanks for your support

Alex, Nick and the Saving the NBN team
