Australia calling plans
Australia’s advanced and wide-ranging telecom infrastructure spans the country, reaches across the Tasman Sea, and stretches into Asia. International developments have extended undersea cables and satellite based infrastructure.
Telstra and its technology collaborator Alcatel-Lucent introduced the Sydney part of a 9,000-km cable to Hawaii in 2008, competing against the likes of Southern Cross, Australia-Japan Cable, and Pipe Networks. In addition, there’s a proposed new cable link between Western Australia and Asia, while in mid-2013 a group including Vodafone NZ, Telecom NZ, and Telstra presented a proposal for a new cable to operate from Sydney to Auckland. ;
Due to the expansion of the National Broadband Network, further use of undersea bandwidth will be vital over the coming decade as high-speed links become accessible across Australia. The satellite industry will also increase during this time as remote users get better speeds from freshly launched satellites that will supply ameliorated connectivity to remote populations.
