Nothing much on today. Tomorrow I am booked into this Australian Computer Society event:-
Our presenter in May is none other than telecommunications expert, Professor Emeritus Reg Coutts a member of the Government's Expert Panel.
Reg will share his insights into this matter and in particular kick off the conversation by raising the following questions:
was the NBN announcement on April 7th what the Expert Panel recommended?
what are the key planks and the key technologies?
what happened to FTTN ?
why now $43 billion and how can this be 'commercial'?
why did Telstra do what they did?
what's happening at the moment and where is Australia vs the world on this decision?
what does it mean for ICT professionals and what does it mean for broadband users?
There is considerable interest in this issue for a whole variety of reasons.
