New Zealand - Ultra-Fast Broadband Network based on Trans-Sector Model


Trans-sector thinking will be required to guide us through the next stage of human evolution. In this report we draw attention to the importance of looking across sectors to create synergy. BuddeComm has previously discussed at length the opportunities within the ICT industries of utilising new telecoms networks for e-health, e-education, smart grids (managing renewables, saving energy), etc. The New Zealand Government is expected to also launch its trans-sector policies for the UFB. This report also discusses a new approach, which applies across infrastructure projects, and looks at the potential synergies between the building of roads, sewerage systems, water and gas pipe networks, as well as telecoms and electricity networks.
