As part of its ongoing research program into significant developments in the telecommunications and broadcasting industries, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) commissioned an independent analysis of the estimated benefits to economic welfare from developments in the telecommunications sector during 2004-05.
A key focus of the report is on market developments with fixed, mobile phone and internet services over the year. The report includes a regional analysis of telecommunications developments and also assesses the benefits to household and small business consumers from the Telecommunications Act 1997 reforms on 1 July 1997.
The report is available in Word, PDF (Adobe Acrobat v5) and HTM.
