TelSoc calls for policy debate on NBN to focus on network long-term benefits Featured

By

Australia’s telecoms industry association, the Telecommunications Society (TelSoc) says the policy debate about the National Broadband Network now needs to shift to the long term benefits of the network.

According to TelSoc’s NBN Futures Group the debate should now focus on a longer-term perspective on how the full social and economic benefits of national broadband services, including 5G, can be realised.

TelSoc has called for the shift following the completion of the NBN build and projected upgrades, as well as the increasing rollout of 5G - and the community’s “remarkable dependence” on broadband services during COVID-19.

The call from the NBN Futures Group comes following its development of a proposal for key policy planks for a bipartisan National Broadband Strategy for 2020-30.

The group says a comprehensive report, based on 21 months research and consultation via four public forums, will be launched on Tuesday 24 November via a TelSoc online forum, with the aim of stimulating interest by the Federal Government, the Opposition and Crossbenchers - and equally by the broadband industry’s supply side and by its end user advocates.

The report - "Towards a National Broadband Strategy, 2020-2030" - will be presented at the forum by Dr Jim Holmes, TelSoc President and NBN Futures Group member, with commentary by panellists, including Helen Haines MP, the independent Member for Indi.
