Charmian Gaud, Secretary of iMug has sent the following invitation:
“I expect like us AUSOM members are talking about NBN access a great deal. We have a guest speaker Damian Ivereigh who was a very early NBN service provider in Tasmania (Launceston) when the optical fibre system was being installed before the Liberals decided to abandon the Labor initiative. Damian runs the only RSP in the country which delivers Gigabit data up and down and we thought that he would open up an interesting discussion at our general meeting.”
