The Communications Alliance and other industry groups have asked the Communications Minister to reconsider the broadband business proposed by Malcolm Turnbull.
The Government said the broadband proposal was a “game changer” and would see investment in new broadband services and the development of a new broadband network.
But Mr Turnbull said the plan was not enough.
“I’m happy to be a game changer for our industry,” he said.
“We have to look at what other solutions we can come up with to provide that. “
“But I am a firm believer that broadband is a business and we’re all in this together.” “
But he said the Government had been able to secure the necessary funding for the project. “

“There’s been a lot of interest in it, but that’s not the right thing to do,” Mr Turnbull told reporters.
“This is a great opportunity to put the Australian economy on a new footing, to put Australia on a footing that will enable us to build the NBN to the next level.”
Mr Turnbull, who has been a vocal critic of the NBN, said the NBN would be “a massive investment”.
“This will be a transformative project for our economy,” he told reporters on Tuesday.
“What it will mean for the future of the internet is enormous.”
The NBN will be built across the country, in partnership with state and territory governments.
