Broadband map released under open source policy

The State Services Commission contracted local companies to develop the Broadband Map and have released the underlying code under an Open Source license according to this Computerworld article. The Broadband Map is part of the overall Digital Strategy and is designed to visually show demand areas by sector to encourage network infrastructure development. It has apparently been used with some success in Australia and the US so here's hoping.

Oh, and local companies ProjectX andSilverStripe both get plugs as well!!
