Chair's speech to CommsDay 2018 Summit
Speech by ACMA Chair Nerida O'Loughlin
Tuesday 10 April 2018
I would like to acknowledge the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet today. I pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
This is my first CommsDay speech as the ACMA Chair since commencing in the role in October last year. Thank you to Grahame and Petroc for this opportunity.
As many of the speakers at this conference have already mentioned, we are at a profound moment in the history of communications and media in Australia. In the not-too-distant future, we will be seeing the completion of the NBN rollout and the introduction of 5G mobile services, underpinning greater connectivity than ever before.
Today, I would like to discuss briefly some of the challenges and opportunities—for the industry and for the ACMA itself—in the current and future environment. I will focus on how we are progressing with implementing reforms agreed by the government following the ACMA Review, our NBN consumer experience work and then an update on our work to support the rollout of 5G through the 3.6 GHz auction.
