<p>Editure, the education services and technology company, predicts that the Federal Government’s just-announced high speed fibre-to-the-premises broadband network will have far reaching and positive consequences for schools and the education industry.</p>
<p>“The government’s announcement cites education as a beneficiary of fast broadband. We agree. This is great news for schools, teachers, parents and students” said Barrie Lambert, President of Editure’s Education Technology Division. “With the exponential leap in bandwidth at their disposal, schools will deliver to their students and teachers the most wonderful multimedia educational resources from around the world that will engage students and lead to higher academic standards.”</p>
<p>Lambert also sees major benefits for the Australian education industry. “The education services sector is already the third biggest exporter from Australia. Editure itself earns more revenue overseas than at home. Super fast broadband will enable us and other companies in the Australian education services industry to develop increasingly innovative services in our own market, and then export to other countries as and when they offer similar broadband speeds. This initiative is vital as it is companies like ours that will deliver the jobs and wealth of tomorrow’s economy.”
