National Broadband Network
The Federal Government has announced it will establish a new company that will invest up to $43 billion over eight years to build and operate a National Broadband Network delivering superfast broadband to Australian homes and workplaces.
To turn its vision into action the Government has advised it will immediately:
  • establish a company to build and operate the network and make an initial investment of $4.7 billion in the network
  • commence an implementation study to determine the companys operating arrangements, detailed network design and ways to attract private sector investment
  • fast-track negotiations with the Tasmanian Government, as suggested by the Panel of Experts, to build upon its National Broadband Network proposal to begin the rollout of a FTTP network and next generation wireless services in Tasmania as early as July
  • implement measures to address regional backbone blackspots through the timely rollout of fibre optic transmission links connecting cities, major regional centres and rural towns - delivering improvements to telecommunication services in the short term
  • progress legislative changes that will govern the national broadband network company and facilitate the rollout of FTTP networks, including requiring use of fibre optic technology in future greenfield developments, and
  • commence a consultative process on necessary changes to the existing telecommunications regulatory regime.
