Global - Analysis - Government telco policies to kick-start the economy


Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not been updated since. The financial crisis has focused global attention on new infrastructure developments. This report contains a case study on how Australia has started this process and it is now finding itself at the forefront of government investments in the development of the new infrastructure necessary to help stimulate the economy. Open access infrastructure provides the best way forward as it creates a multiplier effect that will assist developments in healthcare, education, energy and the environment, as well as in Internet and digital media. Government and industry needs to develop a trans-sectoral vision, aimed at convincing other sectors that an open network will give them the tools to save money and improve their service. At the same time this multiplier effect increases overall GDP by 1-2% and will create new jobs.
