Australia - Broadband - Developments and Analysis 2004


This report analyses broadband developments in Australia in 2004. The broadband battles between Telstra and the Industry and the ACCC were in full swing. But by the end of the year the one millionth customer was connected. On the policy side – more of the same, with no new initiatives from the Federal Government. The States, however, are continuing to make good progress.
