Dr Tim Williams white paper, Connecting Communities, outlines the real benefits of highspeed broadband.
The report offers compelling real life evidence of the impact of broadband – on public services, democratic activity, and on communities themselves. Its conclusion that 'broadband is too important to be left to geeks and engineers' and that the objective should be to build not just a network but a 'networked society' will provoke debate. The author also hopes to promote and inspire engagement and discourse between Australian businesses, industry groups, Government and, of course, communities themselves.
