Broadband Apps Day 2012: come along, and be part of Australia's future
Posted on Tuesday 24 April 2012 by Dan Warne
Interested in being part of how Australians make the most of broadband in the future?
The Australian Centre for Broadband Innovation (ACBI) is hosting a free Broadband Apps Day at Australian Technology Park in Sydney this coming Friday.
The seminar will discuss broadband apps -- not just the simple, useful applications that run on smartphones and tablets -- but the next-generation apps that take full advantage of high speed broadband.
Australian developers have produced many globally successful apps, such as Fruit Ninja, Flight Control have helped create an export market for many smaller companies such as Half Brick, Firemint and Traction Games.
Friday's seminar is designed to create a bridge between the technology sector, developers and the users of future broadband apps.
Perhaps, more importantly, the promotion of these broadband apps will help the public gain greater understanding of the potential value of broadband.
With more and more homes connected by broadband, the opportunities for new applications that take advantage of ubiquitous, symmetric connectivity are there to be seized!
NBN Co's own Jim Hassell, Head of Product Management and Industry Relations, will be in a panel discussing "How will the NBN impact on the Australian home? How does Australia develop broadband apps for the home? What are the opportunities and drivers for demand?"
It's free -- so don't miss out on this opportunity to be part of Australia's broadband future.

When we talk about speeds delivered over the National Broadband Network, we are referring to the wholesale speed to telephone and internet service providers. The speed you can achieve, and services you can use, on your individual connection will depend on many factors including the services you subscribe to, the software and communication protocols you use, quality of your equipment and connection to your home/business, the broadband plans offered by your telephone or internet provider and how it designs its network to cater for multiple users.
