Synopsis

The ‘business case’ for Fibre-to-the-Home networks is no longer based solely on the commercial returns from Internet access and other communication services. It also incorporates the social and economic benefits provided by such infrastructure. In Australia, for example, the government is looking at using next-generation telecoms infrastructure to promote the digital economy including: telehealth, tele-education, smart grids, media and other FttH applications. BuddeComm has taken an industry leadership role to assist the government in this process. This report provides a vision and discusses the key issues and strategies needed for countries to develop their digital economies.
