Analyst: Paul Budde


The new broadband plan offers unprecedented opportunities for Australia. Not just in relation to telecommunications, broadband and the Internet but also for a range of new applications, most of which we can’t even envisage as this point in time. This report addresses the enormous opportunities that this infrastructure - as a utility - has to offer and also addresses at a high level the essential issues that need to be addressed. A critical issue is that it needs to be judged as the infrastructure for the digital economy. To simply see this as an upgrade to ADSL broadband would be a grave mistake. This report is complemented with comments from both the Digital Economy Industry Working Group and our International (Obama Team) Big Think Strategies Group.
