Australia’s Liberal-National coalition Offers Own Broadband Plan

Australia’s main opposition group Liberal-National coalition proposed a scaled-down version of the government’s $39-billion boradband plan. Liberal-National coalition said that its “proposal would cost only 6.32 billion Australian dollars (about $5.8 billion) and offer a greater role for the private sector. Members of the ruling Labor party said it would result in a piecemeal effort that wouldn’t connect most Australian homes at higher speeds.”

The coalition said that it would spend $1 billion for wireless networks in both rural and metropolitan areas of Australia. As well as a further $700 million for a satellite broadband network for the 3% who can’t access the new network. A National Broadband Commission would be set up to implement the plan.
