How fast broadband is changing the lives, loves, careers, shopping habits, businesses, attitudes and dreams of Australians is the focus of a major national roundtable involving some of the country’s top commentators.

The roundtable “Australia’s Broadband Future” will be hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI) in Brisbane at 4.30pm on July 5, 2010, as the highlight of CCI 2.0, the leading forum on creativity and innovation in Australia.
