National Broadband Network
Digital Tasmania supports the National Broadband Network. The plan to connect most customers with Fibre-To-The-Premises (FTTP) is what Digital Tasmania has long called for.
The National Broadband Network is a entirely new platform for communications in Australia. It has the dual benefits of resolving the inadaquacies of the current regulatory/competition environment by separating wholesale and retail providers, as well as replacing often crumbling copper last mile links with fibre optic connections.
Digital Tasmania is working to ensure that consumers interests are taken into consideration with the implementation and operation of the NBN.
Progress of the rollout can be found from the NBNco website.
