The Challenges for the Telecommunications Industry and the Government

TelSoc is pleased to welcome a particularly distinguished speaker for this year's Charles Todd Oration, coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the completion of the overland telegraph in 1872.

Telecommunications has changed much in the last few years and the introduction of the nbn, as well as the success of mobiles, stood us well during Covid. We can expect much change too in the next 10-20 years, particularly as fixed, mobile and space communications start to merge. This is a challenge for the World, as well as for Australia. What are the challenges for the government and the industry going forwards?

The venue for this year is in Doltone House, The Loft in Jones Bay Wharf - see the following link for details:
