I dont see any real need for Australia to build a 100mbps  broadband network, 
as I cannot see how this will allow Australia to keep ahead of the rest of the 
world. As having faster broadband does not mean better productivity, research, 
I do see the need for improving the speeds and connectivity options. Afar 
better option would have been to improve Australia's train system such as high 
speed trains, and more research and development incentives.
