Why a ‘Competitive internet Taskforce’?
Internet speed, coverage, capacity and security will profoundly affect cities’ ability to compete in international markets.
We need a better understanding of our current and future internet requirements in light of international competition.
Competitive internet Taskforce coming in 2019
Committee for Melbourne, through its members participation in the Melbourne 4.0 report, recognised the importance of the rising digital economy. The internet will be integral to faciliate opportunities in the digital economy however Australia currently ranks 57th in the world for internet speeds. As such, our Competitive Internet Taskforce to come in 2019 will investigate the future internet needs of Melbourne and how the needs can be addressed.
We look forward to hearing from members interested in joining the Competitive Internet taskforce to help shape the agenda for appropriate digital infrastructure in Greater Melbourne.
