How well are we tracking to achieve the original mission of the NBN of ‘Building Broadband For All Australians? Four specialist speakers will canvass many of the issues related to the provision of nationwide services and applications to enhance the lifestyle of the end users.  How might we ‘grow’ the number of new customers, and deal with the vexed issues related to those residents currently excluded from broadband? What do systematic field research investigations show about the notion of ‘digital inclusion’ as a measurement of Australia’s digital divide? Do we now need a revamped USO, together with the introduction of an affordable national broadband policy? Have customer pricing policies been a serious bottleneck to improving the rate of NBN related customer service take up – could that be changed for the better? Looking elsewhere, New Zealand has followed a different path to Australia with some notable broadband policy successes. How might we learn from their experiences?

China and the broader APAC region are emerging as key drivers of  technology. This is being driven by a growing and better educated middle-class in the region. Australia seems reluctant to be part of this region and continues to take its lead from the Western Hemisphere.

What can Australia do to embrace the new possibilities offered by a rising China in the technology sector? What does Australia need to do to remain a “Smart State” in a changing World?

The diverse Australian community, distributed across the urban, regional and rural parts of the country in residential, business and industrial locations needs a highly reliable, high capacity communications infrastructure which is able to deliver a wide range of information services at reasonable and competitive prices. Existing infrastructure will need enhancement as the capability of communications technologies and applications and services evolve.
 
An infrastructure ownership, financial and management structure which will enable this essential ongoing development to take place and deliver increasing capability to end users is crucial to ensure all Australians are able to participate effectively in the ever-developing information economy. The corporate structure needs to equally serve national, business and individual economic and social policy requirements by delivering cost-effective outcomes.

This policy forum aims to stimulate national debate by outlining key options for the future of the NBN.

Enrol for this if you want to partake in the live telecast of the speech.

Each year TelSoc hosts the Henry Sutton Oration in Melbourne to commemorate the distinguished but scarcely known Victorian scientist, engineer and inventor from Ballarat.

This year as Orator we have the Australian who played a critical role in bringing the Internet to Australia in the 1990s. While the Internet was still in its infancy in the US, he was able to complete the construction of a new and rapidly growing network within a few months; that network lives on in AARNet.
