The Age of 26 June reports that the Victorian Government plans to use railway corridors for the roll-out of cable for broadband networks.

Linear railway corridors are ideal to allow cable to access centres around regional and rural Victoria. Initially the government plans to lay cable on routes to be upgraded with fast passenger services.

Eventually this may extend to closed railway corridors - both current rail trails and future trails. There is great potential for new rail trails to be created as part of the cable laying process and for cable companies to provide on-going funding to current trails where it uses their corridor.
