There is growing customer demand for broadband and, with few exceptions, the implementation of those technologies is lagging. With the exception of Korea and Japan, the hold-up lies primarily in the power that the incumbent telcos have over the regulators, and their lack of marketing imagination. The development of broadband will depend on content meeting customer demand, and despite their efforts, it is unlikely that telcos can serve this function. The media companies are more suited to this task, with the telcos providing the necessary infrastructure. In this report, Paul discusses the successes, problems and possible solutions relating to the development of broadband.
