Education seems to be the most compelling argument for 
ubiquitous high speed access to the Internet and I would 
suggest such access for every government school/tafe/library 
building in the country should be a priority. These 
facilities should then be available for University study as 
well. The articulation beyond that can be done once this has 
been achieved.
