Cradduck, Lucy M. (2016) Rolling out the future: The current status of the Australian NBN and its impact for property. In 22nd Annual Pacific-Rim Real Estate Society Conference, 17-20 January 2016, Sunshine Coast, Qld.


The future functioning of the digital economy is inextricably linked to the use of high-speed broadband networks. As evidenced by recent Australian federal election campaigns, a focus has been on the rollout of the physical networks. The research seeks to determine the effectiveness of the current NBN rollout as a measure of Australia’s progression towards a fully functioning digital economy. The author examines submissions to the recent RTIRC Telecommunications Review 2015 in order to ascertain the NBN’s current impact upon Australia’s digital economy.
