Asia continues to represent a massive presence in the global broadband market in terms of both fixed and mobile broadband services. The region in fact makes a strong claim to be leading the world in the development of broadband internet. Asia owns almost half of the world’s mobile subscribers and a huge number of those customers are now accessing broadband services via their mobile telephone. At the same time the transition to fibre-based broadband services has been happening faster in Asia than anywhere else, strongly underpinning the importance of delivering fixed high speed broadband services to both home and office. On the back of the mobile and broadband market segments and their respective capabilities, Asian nations have been busy building a formidable alliance with the digital economy; hence the huge demand for data-handling capacity. This Special Report takes a broad look at the Asian market and the way it is applying a range of broadband technologies. In the process of reviewing the region, the report features some of the Asian economies that are driving the market with interesting and innovative strategies.

Analyst: Peter Evans
As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.
Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.
The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.
