The Federal Government has scrapped the controversial broadband tender process and will instead form a new public/private company to build a national network, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has announced.

Unveiling the surprise plan today, Mr Rudd described the $43 billion fibre-to-the-home scheme as the single largest infrastructure project in the country's history and said it would create 25,000 jobs a year during construction, with 37,000 in the busiest year.

Pretty good start in my opinion, but 8 years? And how much will the access pricing cost? Still I think this is well worth the investment and hopefully will be done properly and not monopolized in the future like Telstra was. Any thoughts on this?

Yeah I'll bet $43 billion :P I'll be happy with a competitive priced 12Mbs.

Edit: Just realized my title says "Australia's $43 Fibre-to-the-home network", that's one cheap network. :lol:

i thought they were eaten by crocs :s

Hopefully this will be expandable, because a 100mbit line isn't that new, optus does it, a 4g network would do it . . . honestly it needs a gbit connection!!
