We sat down with Graeme Innes, Disability Discrimination Commissioner and National Broadband Network Champion, to talk about how high-speed internet can benefit people with disability. Interview by Eliza Cussen.
GI: I’m one of a group of champions in a whole range of areas as to how the NBN is relevant to Australian society. I wasn’t in the original group and I kept going back to the minister, Stephen Conroy, and saying “Look, disability is the untold story of the NBN. I think you should have someone telling these stories.” He came back to me and said, “That’s great, will you do it?”
