Since starting this project we’ve had a lot of requests from people wanting to know more. So it was great when the team at ITJourno contacted us to find out what A Faster Future is all about. The article is locked behind a paywall at the MediaConnect site, but news editor (and recently appointed features editor at Nett magazine) Jo Hui gave us permission to run the story here.
Freelance journalist Brad Howarth and fiancée Janelle Ledwidge are exploring the development of broadband in their soon-to-be-launched book, ‘A Faster Future’.
“We’re both fascinated by the digital media industry and broadband in general and we’re heavy users of online services. It’s a passion and interest in trying to understand what the future might hold and the way we’re doing it,” said Howarth.
Up until now, there’s been much emphasis on the National Broadband Network as an infrastructure project, but not much discussion about the services that will evolve from it, said Ledwidge.
