For those needing comprehensive information and objective analysis of Australia’s residential, business, government and regional Markets in Australia, this report provides essential reading and gives in-depth information on:
BuddeComm’s 2007 Australia – Residential, Business, Government and Regional Markets Annual Publication, provides information on a wide range of topics spanning Australian regional projects and government initiatives, as well as telecommunication policies and developments on a state-wide level. Market insight into a wide range of topics, including the usage of Internet and broadband services in the residential and business sectors are provided. The report includes ARPU and subscriber statistics across a range of market segments including web hosting and advertising. In addition, it examines regional trends and infrastructure developments. An overview of regional government policies at a national level is also provided.
The business market has been quick to embrace broadband – by 2007 the vast majority of the business sector had made the transition. Further growth is expected in 2008 and 2009. Australia’s regional and rural communities continue to adopt a highly political stance in regards to telecommunications issues and in fact have been viewed as being a key hindrance to the privatisation of Telstra.
Consumer usage and behavioural patterns are also covered in some of the surveys. Our report provides a unique insight into the drivers and triggers behind Internet and broadband adoption among Australian households. Surveys covered include a statistical overview from the Australian Bureau of Statistics regarding computer and Internet usage amongst Australian households.

Australia’s regional and rural communities continue to adopt a highly political stance in regards to telecommunications issues and in fact have been viewed as being a key hindrance to the privatisation of Telstra. This report includes analyses some of the numerous issues involved, and many of the initiatives that have been launched, completed and continuing in the bid to Connect Australia’s regional and rural communities. The focus is on the government’s role, with private sector activities profiled elsewhere.
