The Telecommunications Infrastructure Construction industry is driven by the introduction of new telecommunications technology. Recent technological advancements have fuelled the insatiable demand by households and businesses for the telecommunication of voice and data. The demand for faster data transfer using an optical fibre-based network has led the Federal Government to commit to constructing the National Broadband Network (NBN), Australia's largest infrastructure project ever. Over the past five years, the wireless communications market has burgeoned with the uptake of devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops for personal, business and entertainment downloads.
Businesses in this industry are primarily engaged in the construction of telecommunications infrastructure, excluding maintenance and repair services. This includes the construction of wireless transmission towers and base stations for mobile phone, radio, television, microwave and radar transmission. This industry also builds wired telecommunication infrastructure for telephony and data transmission using copper, coaxial and fibre-optic cables.
