Australia’s 2009 National Broadband Plan has been heavily revised from a widespread fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) strategy to a multi-technology mix strategy following a government change in 2013. The reviewed strategy is projected to save AU$32bn (compared to AU$73bn required for the FTTP plan) and be completed two years ahead of the original 2021 schedule.
