I was interested to read you column on the shameful fate of the NBN (The Advertiser 30 March). The NBN is a project to repair some of the harm done by past mistakes. It isn't a separate issue, but part of the larger problem of Australia's degenerate telecommunications ecology. In the upcoming election, telecommunications will play a key role in determining my vote.
The anticipated service life of optical fibre is a century or so. Diligent government will plan accordingly.
What is your party's hundred-year plan for Australia's telecommunications infrastructure? What is your vision for the network in ten, twenty and fifty years' time?

Labor will obviously need to see what we inherit but we maintain a commitment to fibre to the premise.
Comment: Labor doesn't seem to be taking the issue seriously. At best, there's no vision for the future (beyond the next election).
