    Educational Infrastructure Spokesperson and MITIE Steering Committee member David Soede from Central Coast Grammar School will address the Senate Joint Standing Committee on the National Broadband Network (NBN) during public hearings on Wednesday 2nd August 2017 at Mingara Recreation Club on NSW's Central Coast.

    David has appeared before this committee in 2014 and will again be expressing MITIE's view that the NBN has been an opportunity lost for the nation. David will make the point that by abandoning fibre to the premise and going with a mixture of technologies the NBN rollout has resulted in disappointing network performance for those schools who have adopted the NBN as their carrier to connect to the internet.  This poor performance has meant that a range of high value educational opportunities that high-speed, uncontended, low-latency internet connections facilitate have been lost. In fact some schools, that were connected to the NBN network, have since changed providers to obtain higher speeds and more stable connections. 

    In particular the NBN appears to have been a lost opportunity for schools in regional, remote, or even outer suburban areas of major cities where other forms of internet connections are either unavailable or prohibitively expensive.

    Check out this website from the Joint Standing Committee on the National Broadband Network for transcripts of what David Soede said in his submission and in answer to questions from the Committee members (transcript may take a while to be published).

    David also gave an interview to ABC local radio on 3rd of August (fast forward to 1:09:40)
