The Australian Government has called for further submissions on its proposed policy update designed to improve the delivery of telecommunications in new developments.
The joint Government and industry-funded Universal Service Obligation (USO), designed to provide a minimum standard of telecoms services to regional and rural Australia, should be shifted from fixed line carriers - mainly Telstra - to the mobile operators, according to a new Federal Government funded report.
The first ever Australian national infrastructure audit has forecast that telecommunications services will outpace GDP growth and contribute $42 billion to the Australian economy by 2031, double the figure in 2011.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
