The Australian telecommunications market is predicted to change dramatically over the next 10 years with the transformation of the telecom industry and a range of economic sectors dependent on telecom infrastructure, according to a newly published analyst report.
Communications minister, senator Stephen Conroy, has called for public comments on draft program guidelines for the Digital Hubs and Digital Enterprise programs.
The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) to develop and promote the digital economy in Australia
The Department of Broadband Communications and the Digital Economy in conjunction with the AIIA is to host a telework forum to help identify how Australian businesses and government agencies can use the catalyst of the NBN to boost the teleworking rate.
The Broadband Commission for Digital Development, set up by the International Telecommunication Union and UNESCO, has produced a second report emphasising the essential role for broadband in recommending strategies governments should adopt to ensure adequate broadband infrastructure.
Shadow Communications minister Malcolm Turnbull has dismissed the National Digital Economy Strategy as "simply a thinly-veiled spruiking of the NBN," saying that none of it goals require the bandwidth the NBN will deliver.
The Government's National Digital Economy Strategy has received a generally positive response from key IT and communications organisations.
The National Digital Economy Strategy released today is a good start, but it faces many hurdles, in addition to the Federal Opposition's long running battle against the NBN.
AIIA has called for business, industry and all levels of government to become actively involved with significant digital economy opportunities that are expected to emerge from the Federal Government's National Digital Economy Strategy, to be released next week.
The House of Representatives Infrastructure and Communications Committee's inquiry into the role and potential of the National Broadband Network (NBN) will hold its final public hearing in Canberra tomorrow 27 May.
The AIIA says the National Digital Economy Strategy, due later this month, will be crucial to translating budget initiatives into tangible benefits. However this document seems to have been produced with minimal consultation: Communications Alliance, for one was not involved.
The Government is planning to release at the end of May a National Digital Economy strategy, but this fact seems to have escaped iiNet. It has told the House of Reps NBN enquiry that such a strategy should be a priority. This does not surprise us: we have previously commented that the promotion of what should be a major project has been very low key.
The Federal Government has announced that it will release, at the end of May, a National Digital Economy Strategy, but its promotion of such a major document has been curiously low-key.
