Global - Analysis - Broadband National Policies


Archived report. This report was archived in February 2004 and has not been updated. Broadband is a critical element in the development of our countries, from both a community and an economic perspective. Broadband provides convenient and affordable access to information, education, healthcare, entertainment and communication. It empowers individuals to choose the services they want, rather than being restricted to what the media and telco barons are prepared to dole out to them. And it allows local businesses to enter new overseas markets. As broadband is of national interest it is critical that each country develops a national vision and national strategies to implement broadband.
