Access information about the NEW Australian digital economy
The National Broadband Network (NBN) is an Australian Government initiative that will deliver high speed broadband over a network designed to reach all Australian premises. It is a vital communications infrastructure that will be used by Australians for many decades to come.
The NBN will connect 93% of homes, schools and businesses to a high speed fibre network with the remaining 7% connected via either fixed wireless or satellite technologies.
Australia currently relies on an ageing copper telecommunications network to connect homes to the internet. As a result, our broadband performance is falling behind the rest of the world. The rollout of the NBN will represent a significant leap in the communications capabilities currently available to most Australians. Investment in high-speed broadband will improve services in education and health sectors, offer the potential for substantial productivity improvement for businesses, create jobs and offer improved services and competition.
In late 2010 Auburn City Council undertook a wide survey of local business across a number of key issue areas which are important to local businesses such as; business confidence, training and education, business growth, employment and skills shortages, environmental sustainability and more. Here is the report of key findings from the survey which will continue to drive programs and initiatives to assist local business.
