Australia: State of Victoria funding wireless broadband system in Shepparton area

"... the money will go towards a $960 000 project to introduce a new wireless broadband Internet and telephone communications project to business and homes within 30 km of Shepparton."

"The Shepparton project - which also involves the Greater Shepparton, Moira, Campaspe and Strathbogie councils as well as private enterprise - will provide direct competition to Telstra's copper-wire broadband Internet and telephone services, using satellite dishes to transmit data. If successful, the government will seek to extend the project across the region."
