Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not be updated since. The Internet brought us the concept of affordable data communications; broadband has taken that a step further with the concept of ‘always on’ access to emails and the Internet. Its capacity will facilitate the video revolution and this where the true value of broadband lies. Broadband is still mainly confined to the developed markets, where good quality fixed networks are sufficient to roll out the technology. Increasing broadband penetration and the growing popularity of Web 2.0 applications is already beginning to create a demand for faster networks. However some countries will have to wait a few years before affordable wireless networks will be able to deliver the same services at affordable prices. In this report, BuddeComm discusses the successes, problems and possible solutions relating to the development of broadband. The report includes information on the broadband leaders, Japan and South Korea. For further broadband statistics, see separate report.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
