Australia Ups the Broadband Bar

The Australians seem to be following a process similar to the Canadian one when it comes to public broadband development.

Recently, the Federal Government in Australia issued request for proposals from interested parties to supply broadband to 98% of Australia's premises.

However, the one notable difference is the speed requirement that the Australians are looking for. They are looking for 12Mbps connections. Currently these speeds are usually top end packages in Canada for residential and small businesses, but the Australians are setting higher speed as the new norm.

To remain competitive in the Global economy, Canada, and certainly Muskoka will need to work hard to pace this gap.
