Regional - Internet - The Americas in 2005

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in November 2006 and has not been updated. With the Internet having been started in the US, most of the Internet users in the region are in North America. Lately, growth in that area is slowing due to saturation. It has also failed to take the initiative in the deployment of broadband due to hindrance by the incumbent telcos and during 2004, China overtook the USA in broadband users. In December 2004, the USA had fallen to 12th in broadband penetration and is now a generation behind South Korea and Japan in broadband infrastructure. Starting from a much lower base, growth in Central and South America has been very high in recent years.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
