The Federal Government is ramping up its National Broadband Network (NBN) push with the announcement of a Realising Our Broadband Future forum to be held in Sydney on December 10 and 11.
Speakers at the event include the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd; NBN Co CEO, Mike Quigley; and Google's chief Internet evangelist, Vinton G. Cerf.
In a statement, Communications Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy said the public can participate in the forum through Twitter and a collaborative wiki, while live streams of the forum sessions will be available online.
“This is about casting a vision for the future, highlighting the opportunities for businesses and other organisations to develop and embrace new applications and services enabled in the high-speed broadband environment,” Conroy said in the statement.
“This is the beginning of a national dialogue that will help us to define roles and map how we can work together to achieve our digital economy goals.”
