	It sounds awfully like an announcement that they're going to
make further announcements about their plan to make a plan. 

	How many people have seen Hollowmen on ABC recently?

		There are some links on this webpage which may go to
external websites for which the Department is not responsible.
		The Government has announced it will establish a new
company that will invest up to $43 billion over eight years to build and
operate a National Broadband Network delivering superfast broadband to
Australian homes and workplaces.
		To turn its vision into action the Government will

		*	establish a company to build and operate the
network and make an initial investment of $4.7 billion in the network 
		*	commence an implementation study to determine
the company's operating arrangements, detailed network design and ways
to attract private sector investment 
		*	fast-track negotiations with the Tasmanian
Government, as suggested by the Panel of Experts, to build upon its
National Broadband Network proposal to begin the rollout a FTTP network
and next generation wireless services in Tasmania as early as July 
		*	implement measures to address backhaul 'black
spots' through the timely rollout of fibre optic transmission links
connecting cities, major regional centres and rural towns - delivering
improvements to telecommunication services in the short term 
		*	progress legislative changes that will govern
the national broadband network company and facilitate the rollout of
FTTP networks, including requiring use of fibre optic technology in
future greenfield developments, and 
		*	commence a consultative process

regulatory regime.

		The Government terminated the Request for Proposals
(RFP) process on 7 April 2009, on the basis of advice from the
independent Panel of Experts that none of the national proposals offered
value for money. The Panel noted the rapid deterioration of the global
economy had a significant impact on the process. Refer to the extract
from the evaluation report
