NBN Survey: Seven top ICT analysts think the NBN will be worth the money spent

ARN survey of seven of Australia’s top analysts shows strong support for the NBN

The analysts surveyed were:

  • Ovum principal consultant, Leith Campbell
  • Buddecomm analyst, Paul Budde
  • Frost & Sullivan ICT practice senior research manager, Phil Harpur
  • Gartner enterprise communications applications research vice-president, Geoff Johnson
  • Layer 10 founder and telco analyst, Paul Brooks
  • IDC telecommunications program manager, David Cannon
  • Market Clarity CEO, Shara Evans

The seven analysts were asked to respond to the following five questions:

  • Would the overall benefits of the planned national broadband network (NBN) to the economy and society be worth the forecast price of $43 billion?
  • Are there any better alternatives to the fibre-to-the-premises network planed by the Federal Government? If so, please detail the network technology.
  • Do you have any doubts that Australia needs a significant upgrade to its existing networks from a technology view point? And from a competition viewpoint?
  • Do you agree with the Government’s plan of using a public/private company to rollout the NBN? If not, what would be better?
  • Is the public discourse around the NBN lacking? If so, in what way?
