BuddeComm Intelligence Report - Need for New Finance and Investment Models for Broadband

Synopsis

Archived report. The key reason why there is widespread government involvement in the development of national broadband networks is that they all agree that the real benefits of broadband are economic and social. But so far these have been hard to quantify. The industry is in need of fresh ideas and suggestions from the financial industry to address these cost/benefits issues.

This BuddeComm Intelligence report is written by Paul Budde and explores the issues surrounding financing and investing in broadband from a high-level strategic perspective. It discusses the importance of broadband to global development; the current flaws in the system and sector transformation – supported by global statistics on the broadband, mobile and ICT industries.

"Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address."
