BuddeComm Intelligence Report - National Broadband Network Trends (NBN)

BuddeComm Intelligence Report - National Broadband Network Trends (NBN)

Around the world, national broadband networks (NBN) have been accepted as the way of the future for the majority of countries. Around 148 countries have developed NBN policies and plans and Asia Pacific is the leading region in terms of fixed broadband market share. This report explores some of the key considerations surrounding NBN deployment as well as providing valuable case studies on interesting deployments in Australia and Singapore. It discusses the role of the NBN infrastructure company, government leadership and a trans-sector approach.

Australia's NBN had a long gestation, and since being implemented in 2012 it has undergone significant changes in its business plan and architecture. Singapore has earned the title of the intelligent island' after years of hard work, achieving high world rankings in most categories of technical advancement.

Key developments:

As of mid 2015 there were 148 countries worldwide with a developed broadband policy in place, recognising that such infrastructure is critical to their development. There were also 6 countries planning on developing a policy and 42 countries with no plans at all. In 2015 a study by the ITU found that only 43% of the world's population has regular access to the Internet.
