This book provides a valuable and unique reference on broadband technology and contributes to ICT innovation and diffusion knowledge from both a theoretical and practical perspective. In the digital age that we live in, it is widely accepted that broadband technology is imperative for the widespread implementation and diffusion of electronic services. Given the recent global emphasis on concepts such as e-government, which is focused on delivering public services online, the significance of broadband technology is immense particularly for understanding and bridging the digital divide. Therefore this book is not only timely, but a valuable knowledge resource for ICT practitioners, policy makers, internet service providers, telecommunication companies and researchers alike."
