Opening Keynote: Connecting the Unconnected: How NBN is Breaking Down the Digital Divide in Australia
Whilst many in the telecoms industry simply talk about connecting the unconnected Australia’s nbn is walking the walk with its LTE and Satellite broadband services delivering world-class broadband to some of the most remote parts of one of the biggest countries in the world. nbn’s fixed-wireless service will deliver 50/20Mbps services to 600,000 premises in regional areas whilst the new Sky Muster satellite broadband service is delivering world-leading 25/5Mbps services to 400,000 premises in remote Australia. Delivering high-speed connectivity to these previously unconnected Australians is ensuring that despite the huge tyranny of distance that there will be no digital divide between cities and country areas in Australia.

Bill Morrow, CEO, NBN Co.

9.40am

Panel Discussion: Connecting the Next 3 billion People
Mobility, hyper-connectivity and exponential technological progress in areas such as the cloud, robotics and automation, artificial intelligence, AR/VR and quantum computing will change all our lives dramatically in the immediate future.
The next 20 years are likely to bring more changes to humanity than the past 300 years. As the so-called developed nations but in particular the ‘other 3 billion’ i.e. the less- or ‘unconnected’ are now starting to encounter these new possibilities, what are the implications on societies, culture and economy? Merely connecting people will clearly just be the beginning – what needs to be done to make sure that these developments will remain beneficial to every citizen, and to humanity at large?
