Communications Minister Stephen Conroy has invited industry and members of the public to lodge submissions to help government advisors develop a request for proposal to build the new broadband network. The Network which must connect 98% of all Australian's to a 12Mbps symmetrical internet service is scheduled to be started late this year.

The Minister said, “I am sure there are a number of individuals and organisations that are interested in the Australian broadband market and that will be able to provide informed submissions to aid in the panel’s consideration of the issues."

The FTTH Special Interest Group have already formed 4 working committees (Brownfields, Greenfields, Open Access, Applications) which will be presented to the Minister by the March 30 deadline.

Details for the lodgement of submissions can be found here.
