The shape of the Coalition?s NBN is becoming clearer, but what will this mean to competition? The market is in a state of evolution bordering on revolution, with challenges for all players big and small. Much will depend on how they respond.

The trick will be to not stifle the competitive forces and technical advances sweeping our telecommunications and media industries.
