The Fibre Optic Cable Installation industry is growing at a fast pace. In the five years through 2012-13 the significance of fibre optic cables has grown enormously to the Australian telecommunication sector. The Federal Government has chosen to invest in building telecommunications technology for the coming decade through the National Broadband Network (NBN). Through the creation of NBN Co the government has single-handedly created a boom in the industry. Major construction companies have competed to engineer, install and maintain the new network as it is rolled out across the country. For these reasons, industry research firm IBISWorld has added a report on the Fibre Optic Cable Installation industry in Australia to its growing industry report collection.
