There is no doubt Australia needs to upgrade its communication capabilities in order to achieve productivity improvement for businesses, improve delivery of services and connectivity for our major cities and regions. The question is how and how much. Will building the NBN position Australia to reap significant economic benefits or will it be an overinvestment unjustified by economic returns, as the Coalition argues it will be?

At this event, The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP will present and reinforce the Opposition's policy position and alternatives to achieve affordable and universal broadband service. CEDA encourages your attendance and the opportunity to engage, discuss and debate Australia's broadband options with him.
