Global - Services - Broadband Services

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in July 2004 and has not been updated. The convergence of the telecommunications sector with the computer and the broadcasting world is creating new synergies, most evident in the exponential growth of the Internet. While the broadband infrastructure is presently the most important aspect of broadband development, future needs will centre around content, and who supplies it. In this report, Paul discussed the type of applications that will succeed on the new medium, and the services that were most popular at the time.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
