Apple Founder Steve Wozniak Wants To Be An Australian
Wozniak is frustrated that broadband service isn’t more available in the United States. He can’t even get it in his California home.
Australia’s ambitious $A35.9 billion National Broadband Network (NBN) aims to connect all Australians to superfast internet by 2021 in a move the government hopes will transform the country’s economy.
Woz told local radio in Brisbane:
‘I am… on the way to become an Australian citizen, that’s a little known fact,’ he told station 4BC on Friday after queuing up to buy the new generation iPhone 5.
‘It turns out that I get to keep my American citizenship,’ he added.
‘I intend, you know, who knows what will follow through in the next five years, I intend to call myself an Australian and feel an Australian, and study the history and become, you know, as much of a real citizen here as I can.’
