Global - Broadband - Infrastructure Trends & Developments

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2009 and has not been updated since. Telecommunications infrastructure costs form a very high proportion of global investment. With the Internet economy, digital media and other telecommunications activities becoming more established; the need for modern and efficient infrastructure is becoming more critical. The growing demand for broadband services has made this even more so. Some countries like Japan and Korea are leading in this area, but most countries are failing to keep pace with demand. This report critically discusses the infrastructure needs of the industry and provides an insight into the global developments taking place. The report provides a look at the current regional markets and includes introductory information on the costs of infrastructure.
