+ - Australia to build fibre to the premises network

Submitted by candiman
candiman (629910) writes "The Australian PM, Kevin Rudd, has just announced that none of the private sector submissions to build a National Broadband Network were up to the standard so instead the Govt is going to form a private company to build a fibre to the premises network.

The network will connect to 90% of premises delivering 100Mb/s. The remaining 10% will be reached with wireless and satellite delivering up to 12Mb/s.

The network has been costed at AUD43B over the 8 years of construction — and is expected to employ 37000 people at peak. It will be wholesale only and completely open access.

As an Australian who voted for the other guys all I can say is wow."
