Description:
The National Broadband Network promises universal high-speed broadband across Australia, and will "level the playing field" between competing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) by charging each the same price for customer access. Combined with the low entry cost for new ISPs (e.g. a national ISP need only connect to 121 NBN Points of Interconnect) it is likely that new ISPs, some with possibly novel service and business models, will start up. The goal of this project is to plan such an ISP. Business planning (e.g. cost and pricing issues) will dominate, but you will need to use and extend your knowledge of telecommunication networks in order to thoroughly develop such a plan, e.g. considering the implications of peering, caching, and partnerships with content distribution networks. Note that "ISP" here need not be limited to Internet data, but may also include broader telecommunication such as voice and video services, and may include (or partner with providers of) some wireless/cellular/mobile services.
