Australia - Broadband - Developments and Analysis 2002


This report looks back on broadband developments in 2002 and analyses the announcements made by Telstra and the Federal Government’s and Opposition’s policies. The report shows that much progress has been made in terms of increasing access to consumers at the wholesale and retail levels, particularly since the second half of 2001. However, much needs to be done in terms of an overall and cohesive vision for the nation, bringing together commercial interests, Government and consumer interests, which for the main have been at loggerheads with each other’s particular interests.
