The Australian Government asked the BCR to consider economically sound ways to fund the rollout of the nbn to regional Australia.  

Specifically, we will assess the non-commercial losses expected from building and operating satellite and fixed wireless services and consider options for funding these losses via contributions from owners of high-speed broadband access networks. Funding options will be transparent, sustainable and pro-competitive.

The project will address the terms of reference provided to the BCR by the government.
