There is much excitement about what might be achieved by connecting the devices and appliances we use in our homes, offices, factories and cities to the Internet. Cisco have said that by 2020 there will be over 50 billion devices connected, but what is not clear is whether a standard will emerge that will allow easy interaction with them by humans and machine to machine interoperability.
It has been shown that high-speed broadband Internet access enhances GDP growth. But Australia?s broadband speed lags well behind other advanced and even emerging economies. In April 2009, at the time the National Broadband Network (NBN) was announced, Australia?s average broadband download speed was ranked 39th in the world. And while the rollout of the NBN is now being ramped up, Australia recently slipped to 59th place.

Laureate Emeritus Professor Rod Tucker will provide an overview of competing broadband technologies, and address the question of what Australia needs to do to become a world leader in broadband connectivity.
Based on well-founded economic modelling, this presentation will show there are substantial benefits arising from the roll-out of Australia's National Broadband Network (NBN). The presentation will also explore some of the issues around the bandwidth requirements for services and look at short-term effects during the NBN?s construction phase.
