Australia’s peak body for the tech industry, the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has been awarded a $250,000 grant from the Queensland Government to partner with the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to deliver critical skills around innovation in IT and cyber security in the State.
Data centre networks provider Leading Edge Data Centres has begun work on a $19.6 million project to upgrade digital infrastructure in the Newcastle and Hunter regions of New South Wales as part of a wider roll-out of its tier-3 edge data centre network across the State.
ICT industry executive Laurie Patton has proposed that the Federal Government immediately fund the operator of the National Broadband Network, NBN Co, to employ suitably qualified people currently being retrenched as a result of the COVID-19 crisis - and to train and deploy them to start upgrading the FTTN connections to fibre so that everyone has access to fast broadband.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)

5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
