Fairfax 'could drop newsprint' when broadband rolls out


Many think it is only a question of when the newspapers stop printing. Where I disagree here is I do not believe the paid online model will work, few will pay for something they can get free. The only ones that will pay are advertisers.

Still in the short to medium term, it is likely that Australia will move to a one-newspaper town as in the US. Many newsagents now already live under such a regime.
