Australia - Analysis - Infrastructure - 2007


The infrastructure market is going though some important changes. This report indicates which infrastructures are suited for what. Telstra has started an NGN update of its telecoms network; they also launched their plans for a FttN network. G9 has launched its own FttN plans. The government has set $3 billion aside for the future proofing of regional infrastructure, Labor is talking about $4 billion. This in turn has opened up opportunities for new investments for a national/regional wholesale access network. Once such infrastructure is in place the business case for local access networks becomes more realistic as well.
