Senator Stephen Conroy gave his first major address to the IT industry 
as the new Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital 
Economy at a gala dinner event Thursday night where he outlined the 
Government’s future ICT goals including its fibre-based broadband plans, 
digital education reform and ISP-level filtering.

Speaking at the Internet Industry Association Annual Gala Dinner, Conroy 
reiterated the Government’s commitment to building its $4.7 billion 
high-speed fibre-based broadband network.

“While the Government has insisted that the network will offer minimum 
speeds —and I emphasise minimum speeds—of 12 megabits per second to 98 
percent of Australian homes and businesses; we believe it could actually 
go much further,” he said.
