Research and Markets: Australia - National Broadband Network - Industry at Crossroads - 2011
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/e31c75/australia_nation) has announced the addition of the "Australia - National Broadband Network - Industry at crossroads" report to their offering.
Australia will be the first country in the world where the whole industry will adopt a new plan for the future. In the past this was based on ad hoc decisions and there was little room for long-term planning. Competition survived on the crumbs that fell from the Telstra table, and on regulatory relief which often took many years to arrive and was often too late to help a starving competitive environment. Uncertainty was a major obstacle. All decisions depended on Telstra and there was little hope for individual initiatives.
Those who developed their own independent plans quickly discovered that Telstra's reach was long and deep. Good examples of this are TransACT in Canberra and the Unwired service. Even larger companies like Optus and AAPT (Telecom New Zealand) struggled to set their own course. The single most important element of the National Broadband Network is that it will provide certainty about future direction. There will be problems, and the outcome will not be perfect, but for the first time individual companies are far more in charge of their own destiny.
Of course these changes will not happen overnight and there will be a transition period where both parties (Telstra and its competitors) will have to cooperate, this will require give and take.
