Fixed broadband has become an integral infrastructure for the future as the economy, society and the environment now relies heavily on the Internet and associated applications. This report explores how the deployment of broadband networks is progressing around the world, with an emphasis on fibre infrastructure. It examines the impact of the Internet on the economy, the benefits of NBNs and key considerations for deployment and the important issues surrounding Internet Governance.

It has become very clear that innovation related to ICT and digital technologies is one of the key components for future economic and social strength. Countries with a sophisticated fixed and mobile telecoms infrastructure are well placed to take advantage of these future technological and societal developments.
Countries without the necessary infrastructure however are expected to lag behind, especially once innovations around the Internet of Everything, M2M and Big Data gather pace. We are already seeing the beginnings of sophisticated Smart Cities emerge in some parts of the world.
Asia makes a strong claim to be leading the world when it comes to the general development of broadband internet. While mobile broadband is already a large and fast growing segment of the region’s internet market, fixed broadband continues to underpin the delivery of internet services to households and businesses. Fibre-based fixed broadband services have taken on a major significance and are shaping up to define the broadband market of the future.
This BuddeComm report aims to capture the progress of the current fixed broadband market around the world, supported by statistics, case studies and analysis. In addition, the report includes unique regional case studies written by BuddeComm’s senior analysts, and includes: Europe, USA, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East.
