Australian Minister named “Visionary of the Year”
A New York-based think tank dedicated to studying the use of information and communications technology has chosen Australia’s Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, as its Intelligent Community Visionary of the Year for 2012.
The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) selected Senator Conroy for his work in establishing the National Broadband Network (NBN).
The NBN, comprising optic fibre, fixed wireless and next-generation satellite technologies, is designed to provide faster, more reliable broadband access to all Australians no matter where they live.
According to the ICF, Senator Conroy has "demonstrated extraordinary commitment and passion in attempting to enable the development of a digital age infrastructure in one of the world’s most promising and unique nations."
