Apple Cofounder to Apply for Australian Citizenship

After his trip to Australia to promote the newest iPhone 5, Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak announced that he wants to obtain an Australian citizenship.

Inspired by the new National Broadband Network in Australia, Wozniak said he would still keep his US citizenship but intends to reap the benefits of becoming an Australian citizen.

“I spoke to [Australian Communications Minister Stephen Conroy] and they plan to roll it out to everyone in the country. I support [the national broadband plan] very much,” Wozniak told the Australian Financial Review.

During his interview with Brisbane’s radio station 4BC, the Apple co-founder said, “It turns out I can keep my American citizenship. I intend to call myself an Australian and feel an Australian, and study the history and become as much of a real citizen here as I can.”

The ambitious National Broadband Network (NBN) in Australia is expected to deliver high-speed internet access to reach approximately 93 per cent of the country’s businesses and households by June 2021.

In his interview with the Australian Financial Review, Wozniak said that he has told Conroy about his support for the country’s NBN plan and that he was ‘underway to become an Australian citizen.’

“It’s one of the reasons why I actually like this country and want to become a citizen. I live in a country where we don’t have any regulation of telecommunications,” Wozniak said.
