Australia Internet, Broadband and Digital Economy Statistics

New Report about Australia Telecommunications

This report provides 160 statistical tables for Internet, broadband and all aspects of the digital economy and telecommunications in Australia

Australia is among the leading countries whose government is actively investigating the social and economic benefits that can be achieved through the deployment of a mainly fibre-based telecommunications infrastructure. Services that depend on high quality broadband infrastructure include tele-health, e-education, e-business, digital media, e-government, smart meters, and so forth.

The decision from the Australian government to launch a $43 billion national FttH broadband network is a clear indication that they believe broadband is an essential telecommunications infrastructure. A digital economy requires an open broadband infrastructure, and there is widespread support for this visionary plan in Australia.
