The National Broadband Network (NBN) is Australia’s biggest-ever infrastructure project. It’s what the national road system and railways were to the previous two centuries – an essential piece of infrastructure for a city’s future economic success.
But, should cities wait for the digital future or should cities create their own digital future?
With this event, we give attendees access to top business leaders and tech thinkers, with the goal to learn how cities can become super-connected? What’s the benefits of a community owning its broadband infrastructure? Wireless, fixed or both? What’s our city’s digital infrastructure needs? And how use of technology will drive our city’s future economic success and improve social well being.
Panelists: James Vidler – associate director of IT Services UoN; Brendan Brooks – founder of Hyperweb; Roger Pryor – tech blogger, speaker and educator. More panelists to be confirmed.
