Full Speed Ahead: The Government Broadband Report Q3 2011

The EIU finds Singapore, Japan, and South Korea remain the most ambitious in the world when it comes to broadband services

 

The government broadband report shows that East Asian governments are targeting faster services and greater coverage than other countries. Already considered some of the most advanced broadband economies in the world, all three will significantly extend their lead if they meet targets.

 

The following questions are addressed:

  • What targets are set for next-generation network (NGN) speed and coverage?
  • By when do governments want to see basic broadband services universally available, and what does 'basic' mean in terms of speed?
  • How do countries compare in terms of universal and NGN broadband targets?
  • How much public funding has been pledged for the attainment of these targets and how do countries compare?
  • How are governments acting to facilitate the plans through regulation and by intervening directly in market and network development?
  • What role does the private sector play in government plans?
  • What is the current status of the plans and of industry involvement in them?
