I heard that too. But I think it was actually a miss in his delivery. 
He was speaking about all the infrastructure developments which were:
rail: steel
concrete: roads
broadband: fibre(optics)

So he wasn't really saying the broadband was made of those materials. 
It was just a messy summary statement in his speech.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
