Australia - Broadband - Developments and Analysis 2007


We analyse broadband developments in Australia in 2007 in this report. The broadband battles have moved on from the lack of availability of broadband services to the lack of true broadband (speeds of 2Mb+), competitive prices for such high speed services and new applications such as IPTV and VoIP over broadband. In the meantime penetration is on the rise and is set to continue for the rest of this decade. Broadband Australia funding has attracted a number of new industry initiatives.
