In 2010, the National Broadband Network (NBN) will be a major discussion point across Australia. It is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken and if done correctly will revolutionalise the way we live, work, play and communicate for generations to come.
Think the Snowy Mountains scheme for the Information Age.
Health, a major problem for government, has been identified as one of the most significant beneficiaries of the NBN and with our aging population there will be only be an increase in the demand for high quality health and caring services.
