The 2016 National Broadband Scheme Decision allows for implementing bodies to choose the most appropriate funding model to their broadband project, specifically referencing the following models as examples:
- Public Sector Owned (or municipally owned)
- Concession to Build-Operate-Transfer
- Public Private Partnership
- Gap Funding model
This paper provides an overview of these different funding models to introduce implementing bodies to them, explain how they work, and what key considerations should be made when deciding which model to proceed with.
