Paul Budde Communications Stock Market Press Releases and Company Profile

Sydney, June 6, 2007 AEST (ABN Newswire) - The stakes have been raised since bipartisan political approval has been given for spending billions of dollars on new broadband infrastructure. Some $5 billion, at least, is at issue and international interest in these developments is evident.

The key will be to try and achieve the best possible outcome. This might be difficult since diametrically opposed political and business interests are in the balance as well. Nevertheless there are enough people pushing for solutions that will be in the best interest of Australia.

If the regulatory environment is right the government needs to spend significantly less money. Telecommunications is a profitable and lucrative business and the financial market is also watching this space with great interest. At the very least new infrastructure should be based on structural separation.

The Roundtable will update on national developments. The various projects, such as Broadband Connect/the Labor Broadband plan will be discussed, and the technology mix, FttH/FttN, wireless, BPL and ADSL2+, will be unravelled.
