Analyst: Paul Budde


In early 2007 the Labor Party proposed its National Broadband Network. Under the proposal, a rollout of a new Fibre-to-the-Node network would deliver high-speed broadband at 40 times faster than current speeds to 98% of Australians. The remaining 2% of Australian’s in regional and rural areas not covered by the FttN network would have improved broadband services through wireless and satellite. The key part of the proposal is to roll out a nationwide backbone network that would be able to services local access networks. In this report we: discuss the plan; analyse the developments; and provide ongoing updates on these developments.
