Broadband today : the role of Australian local government authorities
Cradduck, Lucy M. (2012) Broadband today : the role of Australian local government authorities. In Kommers, Piet, Issa, Tomayess, & Isaias, Pedro (Eds.) Internet Technologies & Society 2012, IADIS Press, Perth, WA, pp. 280-284.
The paper seeks to clarify the role of Local Government Authorities in facilitating the Australian digital economy. It does this by analysing responses to the 2012 BTA, NBN and Digital Economy Survey. This reveals the level of recognition by LGAs of relevant issues; their level of use of federal, state and other programs designed to enable end user engagement; and other actions LGAs are undertaking to enable their regional digital economies. The analysis reinforces the significant role of LGAs in the future of Australia’s digital economy and identifies areas where assistance may be required.
