Australia's communications future is being increasingly shaped by globalisation trends. However, complex interrelationships exist between forces operating at global, national and local scales. Social and business networks have a major role in moulding Australia's communications future. The changing nature of family social networks have significant communications implications. The use of telecommunications to deliver public services is growing in importance as governments attempt to lower costs of the delivery of these services.
