There has been much discussion about the various technologies used to provide broadband access in Australia; FTTN, FTTP, FTTdp, HFC etc. However, there has not been much discussion about solving the practical problems in providing these services to end-users.
The National Broadband Network (NBN) should create long-term benefit for Australia. The most direct effect is to increase the availability of high-speed broadband. Based on publicly available information and census data, we can show where and by how much higher broadband speeds will be available to Australian households and businesses. In this presentation, we show maps of where broadband availability is improved by the NBN.
Each year TelSoc hosts the Henry Sutton Oration in Melbourne to commemorate the distinguished Victorian scientist, engineer and inventor from Ballarat, Henry Sutton - who is scarcely known, but had a string of accomplishments and innovations in many areas.
This year we are pleased to have as the Orator an experienced technologist from the telecommunications industry who has recently taken on one of the key technology jobs in Australia - Ray Owen, CTO of NBN Co.
