Pine Gap has been operational since its first satellite, Rhyolite 1 was launched on 19 June 1970. The facility has been instrumental in signals intelligence collection during the two Iraq wars, the Balkans conflicts, and Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent ?war on terror?. It?s presence in Australia has been a topic of debate for over 40 years.

ABS Data Usage Growth (Extract from NBN Co corporate plan)

Rod Sims presentation to NBN Rebooted conference: "The ACCC agrees ... with the Vertigan conclusion that ... disaggregation of NBN Co ...

The end of TUSMA, and the ongoing NBN Co-Telstra negotiations, herald the ideal time for a drastic rework of the Universal Service Obligation ? shifting it to NBN Co rather than Telstra, and bringing mobile into the mix. That?s the view of industry veteran professor Reg Coutts, a member of the expert panel that advised on the previous version of the NBN. And with Coutts? ideas including the possible provision of more mobile backhaul in regional areas, this concept might just mesh with the recent arguments from some parts of the mobile industry.

I am surprised by how often I am told that broadband should be just treated like our other utilities such as electricity, gas, water and (of course) sewers. 

Marc Andressen, founder of Netscape, explained this better than anyone else back in February 2014.

The pay TV business is under threat in the US. Viewers are "cutting the cord". What direction with Foxtel take in Australia - compete with the OTT guys or become a telco?

Guidelines for Reviewers

The peer review process

All papers submitted to the Australian Journal of Telecommunications and the Digital Economy (?the Journal?) are peer reviewed. Usually ? and always in the case of academic authors ? a minimum of two reviewers are used, with 'double blind' reviewing.

The role of reviewers

Reviewers have two important roles: to maintain a high level of quality control for articles published in the Journal; and to assist authors to improve the quality and readability of their papers, if deemed suitable for the Journal.

Minister Hacker

ISP Data Retention seems to me to be a "very courageous" policy as Sir Humphrey might warmly advise Minister Hacker. As usual the essence of the advice eludes Hacker. If Brandis or Turnbull or Abbott were actually named "Hacker" would it still elude them? Probably.
