In the mid to late 2000s, I set up the industry association Smart Grid Australia (SGA). The reason why I became involved in the smart energy sector was that earlier that decade I had established the industry group UtiliTel.
At that time, Telstra was reluctant to go even beyond the integrated services digital network (ISDN) in starting to provide Australia with a proper broadband service. It was all about protecting their existing business rather than moving into innovative new technologies. The company estimated that there was no demand beyond 1 to 2 million broadband subscribers in Australia by 2010.
