In this submission ACCAN informs the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Infrastructure and Communications that the NBN has the potential to contribute to Australia in a significant way. In order for the NBN to be most beneficial to Australians, ACCAN believes that there are a number of key enabling policies that need to be in place relating to ubiquity, computer literacy and applications for people with a disability.

ACCAN takes the postion that the NBN as has the potential to open up new opportunities for the most disadvantaged people in our community and to create a range of new educational and economic benefits as the effect of geographic isolation is reduced.
