Internet Australia Backs FttP deployment & endorses MyBroadbandvReality's recommendations
Last Friday, Internet Australia (https://www.internet.org.au/about) appeared at the NBN Senate Committee. In the past Internet Australia has called for fast, ubiquitous broadband without publicly favouring a technological solution. Based on new fibre costings and backed by a survey of its members - IA has now called for a re-assessment of the Government’s MTM model. “Deploy fibre” was the short answer from IA’s vice-chair, Dr Paul Brooks, when asked what the government should do with the NBN at the Senate inquiry on Friday.
We welcome these endorsements from Dr Brooks, a clear expert and leader in the field of Telecomms and Internet.
