Broadband Policy in the United States and Australia: Building a 21st Century Approach to Economic Growth
The United States and Australia have recently embarked upon very ambitious initiatives related to broadband: for the United States, this has taken the form of the National Broadband Plan; for Australia, this has taken the form of the National Broadband Network. Both plans will have a significant impact upon the economic growth of both countries, but the specific details of each broadband initiative will determine the impact in each country. What are the similarities between the two initiatives? What are the differences? And what can be expected as both the United States and Australia expand broadband throughout their respective countries?
