The first version of Our Broadband Future came out in 2010, but ACCAN is pleased to report that despite new government policy directions and many debates over recent years, the four key principles on broadband espoused in our original statement have stood the test of time:

    1. Broadband for all.
    2. No consumer should be worse off during the transition and following the implementation of the National Broadband Network (NBN).
    3. Robust consumer protections and consumer engagement.
    4. Sustaining a competitive and fair market.

The 2014 update to Our Broadband Future emphasises how important broadband has become to everyone's social and economic opportunities and how our economy as a whole will benefit from ensuring quality mobile as well as fixed infrastructure, and ensuring everyone has the access they need – whether that be on a PC, a tablet, a smartphone or some other device we have yet to imagine.
