Australia - Broadbanding Australia - Analysis and benchmark overview

Synopsis

In March 2003 Ewan Sutherland from INTUG in Brussels addressed the annual ATUG conference with a view on the broadbanding of Australia. The following Report is a summary of his presentation and provides an excellent outside observation. His scorecard follows that of many other observers. Australia dropped since mid 2002 from the 12th to the 25th position on the OECD benchmark table as others have been broadbanding much faster than Australia. Finally in early 2004 Telstra turned the tables and started to push broadband and the 1st millionth customer arrived in mid 2004.
