Rethinking USO in a NBN world

The national broadband network brings with it a profound transformation of our telecommunications sector and it's time to consider whether the current Universal Service Obligation (USO) regime is up to speed.

The construction travails of NBN Co, a Malcolm Turnbull staffer behaving badly and conspiracy theories about Foxtel provide more fodder for both sides of the noxious NBN debate to further their positions. However, a national broadband network, whether it’s Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) or Fibre-to-the-Node (FTTN), brings with it a profound transformation of our telecommunications sector.

It’s a transformation that impacts every aspect of our lives and the narrow-minded political circus, that has accompanied the NBN these last four years, could end up as a lost opportunity to re-examine critical issues.
