The National Broadband Network plan is good for all smart companies. It is a highly ambitious plan that will fundamentally change people’s businesses – where they do business, where they locate their business, and the way they will do business. We can use fast broadband to market our products to the world faster and more cheaply. And we can use fast cheap broadband to communicate and link with each other through video, teleconferencing, wikis and new ways we can’t even dream of.
And it won’t matter where your business is located, in the dining room or Pitt Street. Or whether your business is small, home-based or solo. The world will soon be just a click away.
