Submission Australia government to build broadband network

bug1 writes: "The Australian Federal Government has announced it has scrapped a controversial tender process to build the new national broadband network. It will instead form a public/private partnership to build the new wholesale Fibre-To-The-Premises network.

The network will connect 90 percent of all Australian premises (towns with more than about 1000 people) with speeds up to 100 Mbit/s, next generation wireless and satellite technologies will connect the remaining 10% of premises. It will be Austrlias first national wholesale-only, open access broadband network"
