EST 1867

Thousands of people in the Ballarat region gathered on Tuesday
to commemorate and remember those brave men and women
who put their lives on the line in world conflicts over the past
century. Dawn services, street marches and traditional
games of two-up were held as part of
Anzac Day celebrations.

Mates honoured at march


AN UNLIKELY mateship
sparked by a chance en-
counter has been celebrated
thanks to an unusual addi-
tion to Ballarat’s 2017 Anzac
Day march on Tuesday.
Five-year-old Oscar Ko-
sloff received the honour of
sitting with 95-year-old war
veteran – and mate – Tom
Rush during the march.
It is rare for people who
did not serve to be afforded
the opportunity to join with
Australia’s former soldiers,
but the bond between Oscar
and Mr Rush is so strong an
exception was made.
The moment celebrates
a year of friendship that has
seen the pair meet regularly
since their first encounter at
the 2016 march.

Mr Nardella was sprung along with former
Speaker Telmo Languiller by a Fairfax Media
investigation for using second residence en-
titlements intended for regional MPs to prop
up homes on the Bellarine Peninsula earlier
this year. A report from parliament's auditors
PwC released last month revealed that since
2010, Mr Nardella had claimed $174,836 for
second residences. Mr Nardella has so far re-

Ballarat test
site for NBN
fast internet

THE National Broadband Network Company
has used a site in Ballarat to showcase new
trial technology which allows for download
speeds of up to one gigabit per second.
The high speeds which were achieved by

bonding together three antennae used as
part of the fixed wireless technology, while
speeds of up to 400 megabytes a second were
achieved using just one antenna.

The current rollout of fixed wireless to
about 600,000 households across the country
is expected to deliver speeds of 25 megabytes
per second, substantially less than the trial
NBN achieved the speeds by using a spare
operating sector along an already estab-
lished fixed wireless tower before installing
additional radio equipment.
NBN chief executive Bill Morrow said “our
ability to deliver gigabit speeds on fixed wire-
less demonstrates our continued focus on
identifying and implementing tech advance-
ments as and when they are needed, across
all technologies”.
The high speed trails come one week after
