Some certainties around the National Broadband Network
Conclusion: Business prefers certainty to doubt and some issues now appear to be clear:
- Full deployment of Australia’s National Broadband Network now seems likely within about 5 years.
- Its funding method and construction costs will create broadband access with higher prices than current ISP charges and those of Australia’s trading partners.
- Enterprises now need to act in self-interest to review and plan their access networks for branch offices and customer service.
