Synopsis

Archived report. In 2014 there were a number of countries around the world whose governments were actively investigating the social and economic benefits that can be achieved through the deployment of a mainly fibre-based telecoms infrastructure.

Services that depend on high quality broadband infrastructure include e-health, e-education, e-business, digital media, e-government, smart meters etc. In countries where the national telco is lagging behind, we see that governments have no choice other than to take a leadership role, as they have done with similar infrastructure over the last 100 years.

This unique BuddeComm Intelligence report provides insights into the various functions and importance of broadband infrastructure. It explores the reasons why a holistic approach to implementing National Broadband Networks (NBN) is required and examines the issues surrounding market-initiated competition.

Latest developments:

Early results of the Google Fiber project are positive; Australia was the first country to get the (national purpose) vision right, thanks to government leadership in terms of the NBN. The USA soon followed and the EU (Digital Agenda for Europe), New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Korea and Sweden are showing real leadership as well. Economic and trans-sector innovations are now key items on the political agenda of these countries.
