    Abstract

    This paper provides an overview of presentations and discussion at the October 2012 "Converging on an NBN Future" symposium held at the University of Canberra. Key themes explored in the paper include recognition of the importance of Australia's National Broadband Network as an enabler of the digital economy (noting the importance of network ubiquity and reliability as well as speed) and its central role as platform for innovation and new service delivery. The paper outlines challenges in selling the NBN and notes the need for increased digital literacy across society, industry and governments. Policy issues arising in developing next generation communications infrastructure and services are discussed. The paper concludes with symposium participants' recommendations for advancing the NBN.
