Australia:$38 billion – Canada: $225 million

April 7, 2009

These are the respective commitments by the two governments for broadbrand services.

In Australia, the planned network is expected to connect 90 per cent of the country to wired broadband services with speeds of up to 100 megabits per second and the remaining 10 per cent with next-generation wireless and satellite broadband with speeds of up to 12 megabits per second.

In Canada, the funds are expected to help extend broadband to its underserved communities.
