“What technological innovations are expected in the next decade and what differences do they promise for our lives?”
The shape of the Coalition’s NBN is becoming clearer, but what will this mean to competition? The market is in a state of evolution bordering on revolution, with challenges for all players big and small. Much will depend on how they respond. The regulators can heavily influence the outcomes for both competition and consumers; but should regulation be limited to ensuring the NBN is not able to exercise its monopoly power? The trick will be to not stifle the competitive forces and technical advances sweeping our telecommunications and media industries.
This month's TelSoc lunchtime lecture follows the TelSoc AGM. It includes Gary McLaren and Bob James discussing the status of NBN today. Is it back on track, or could a yet another path emerge? The 3 major reviews of the NBN have now been delivered and provide much to discuss.
The NBN was born out of political controversy. The burgeoning digital economy demands ubiquitous future-proof broadband access to return its dividends of massive social benefits, service delivery and productivity improvements, and global business opportunities. But not everyone foresees the benefits nor is comfortable with the costs. Mike Quigley addresses the challenges and the lessons learned in managing the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken in Australia. Mike was awarded with the Charles Todd Medal for 2013 at this event.
