This chapter focuses on the adoption factors of ubiquitous broadband that includes both fixed and mobile technologies. It first considers how both fixed and mobile broadband networks are increasingly recognized as indicators of the knowledge economy, and how technological innovation and higher bandwidth enable entry into the era of ubiquitous broadband access. It then emphasizes the importance of successful diffusion of fixed and mobile broadband for the provision of advanced Internet Protocol-based services such as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) mobile television, and 4G applications. It also presents the results of regression analysis suggesting that network competition between fixed and mobile broadband, platform competition in fixed broadband markets, and the multiple standardization policy in mobile markets are all significant factors of ubiquitous broadband adoption and deployment. Finally, it discusses the moral and ethical considerations underlying the social justification for government policy promoting access to information and communication technology.

Keywords:   broadband adoption, ubiquitous broadband, fixed broadband, mobile broadband, knowledge economy, broadband access, multiple standardization policy, government policy, information and communication technology
