Yesterday I attended a workshop with many of the key people in the NZ Telecommunications Industry to see if the industry could deliver a solution for a step change up in our broadband links to the world.
One of the great things about NZ is that we are small enough to get the key players together and that we all know each other pretty well. It was a vigorous discussion but in good spirits. No consensus but I think it gave a greater focus on what the key issues are and may lead to more research or some further defined options.
I was able to present my strawman on Funding Separation.
The short presentation I used is here: Funding Separation presentation.
The discussion gets reported back to the MED.Â I hope there is a second session.
