Australia's PM Promotes National Broadband Plan

Australia's Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has used a trip to Townsville in the state of Queensland to sell the benefits of her $US38 billion national broadband network.

Julia Gillard says regional cities like Townsville will benefit most from video conferencing services that link patients with specialists in capital cities.

"They will be able to get that specialist support through the internet through the national broadband network."

Ms Gillard is also visiting Mackay and Emerald today to campaign in marginal seats.

She's being trailed by a large press pack from Canberra, but there have been some curly questions from the local media.

"Do you think tomato sauce should be free when you by a pie from the bakery?"

The PM says its better when the sauce comes for free.
