Mr. Penn said: Nowadays, new manufacturers are constantly pouring into the mobile and fixed network market, and measures such as price reduction, value-added and increased traffic allowance have made all walks of life face greater pricing pressure. The digital revolution will continue to accelerate the development of the national level local characteristic center of the third generation semiconductor, and will have a significant impact on us and our customers. As NbN deployment gradually takes shape, we are about to enter an important turning point in the transformation of the telecommunications market

we announced in May 2016 that NbN deployment is expected to have a negative impact on Australia Telecom's EBITDA profits of $2 to $3 billion. According to our latest expectation, the cost of NbN high connectivity virtual circuit (CVC) will double in the next few years. We predict that this adverse impact may reach the maximum value of this range, about a $3billion. These changes confirm why we should adhere to the correctness of our vision and strategy. At the same time, it also confirms why we must accelerate the transformation

in the rapidly changing market environment, this year we announced that we would invest up to $3billion in the next three years to further adjust the strategic positioning of the enterprise and strive to achieve an EBITDA profit of more than $500million by 2021. The plan is based on our daily capital expenditure, including spectrum investment in the first three years of fiscal 2019. Our total capital investment will exceed $15billion. At present, we mainly focus on networking. Since November, we have invested 750million Australian dollars

The main highlights of the investment include:

89% of users doubled the download speed of standard 4G

prepare for 5g pilot in early 2018
