Archived report. Around the world, national broadband networks (NBN) have been accepted as the way of the future for the majority of countries. By September 2016 there were 151 countries which had developed NBN policies and plans and Asia Pacific is the leading region in terms of fixed broadband market share. This report explores some of the key considerations surrounding NBN deployment as well as providing valuable case studies on interesting deployments in Australia and Singapore. It discusses the role of the NBN infrastructure company, government leadership and a trans-sector approach.
Australia’s NBN had a long gestation, and since being implemented in 2012 it has undergone significant changes in its business plan and architecture. Singapore has earned the title of ‘the intelligent island’ after years of hard work, achieving high world rankings in most categories of technical advancement.
For further global statistics on fixed broadband, please also see separate report: Global - Broadband and FttP - Key Statistics and Insights.
As of late 2016 there were 151 countries worldwide with a developed broadband policy in place, recognising that such infrastructure is critical to their development. There were also 7 countries planning on developing a policy and 38 countries with no plans at all. In 2015 a study by the ITU found that only 43% of the world’s population has regular access to the Internet.
Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
