Australia - Industry - International Benchmarking

Synopsis

This report provides detailed statistical benchmarking comparisons of Australia against other developed nations in the areas of Internet and broadband, mobile services and fixed-line access. Telstra’s about-turn on broadband has produced a very significant improvement in the broadband penetration in Australia. Despite the turnaround in subscriber numbers, Australia remains at the bottom of the international ranking and it will take at least two to three years for the country to catch up with its trading partners, but the gap is rapidly closing. In 2005 penetration in the Australian market moved towards the 85% mark indicating the market is moving towards saturation. Australia ranks near the top of the country list for fixed-line call access.
