Abc learning to close 55 centres around the country is costing taxpayers almost $25 million (and will cost the taxpayer $11 million in 2016) and will cost Australia $3.4 billion over the next decade – and you will hear very little on that front by the Australian Government, whose new $15-billion national broadband policy aims to deliver 5 times the fibre-to-the-premises capacity of Telstra’s FTTP/Fibre-to-the-Cell project
The Government wi더킹카지노ll announce more details later.
“For the first time we will be able to see what our future Government is thinking,” a spokesman for the Prime Minister said.
“At a national level we will be able to look at how we would deliver what we think are the benefits of what we are doing, for our economy, the environment, national security.”
When asked at this press conference what the “benefits” would be for his people, he had an answer, one of few he gave that had nothing to do with the NBN.
“A lot of people have said that NBN Co will be able to give us an edge in terms of speed,” Mr Abbott said, without specifying which projects he referred to.
“I am not saying all people are going to be able to do that, but I am saying NBN Co would be able to get faster connections if we were able to do the things that we are doing now.”
That line caused a storm in the industry after it had been previously referenced, despite the fact NBN Co itself conceded it was not yet able to deliver speeds that meet current expectations.
So what did he mean?
But that simply does not mean what the rest of us are seeing today is a technological revolution, it does not mean that NBN Co will be able to deliver a more secure network, and it does not mean it will be possible to make it affordable enough for everyone to actually use.
All it means is that it may have the potential to have a greater impact on your life on any given day, if you are lucky enough to live near one of the 56 participating National Broadband Networks.
What makes Australia particularly good at it is:
– The infrastructure in place now
– The Government’s commitment of billions of dollars over the next decade
– A focus on building fibr
