Only three short years ago, the National Broadband Network was a main focus of the federal election as each major party campaigned their vision of Australia's connected future. This coming federal election has seen less talk of the NBN perhaps as Australians have become disillusioned over promises made versus what has been rolled out.
Yet the impact of the NBN on the future of Australia's connectivity, technological developments, and networked society remains an important topic. Mike Quigley was the first employee of NBN Co and its CEO for four years. He will reflect on the ups and downs of the NBN project over the past several years, and considers the various options to complete the NBN. A must for all those interested in connectivity and the upcoming federal election.
