Entertainment x.0 to boost broadband deployment
We explore the definition of broadband and explain its interaction with European policy goals; analyse available data in order provide a detailed, objective and realistic picture of the broadband deployment, adoption, and usage situation in the EU from a number of different perspectives; and assess the drivers of broadband today, with particular emphasis on audiovisual and entertainment services. Measures to promote demand in general and the distribution of IP-based audiovisual content in particular, would appear to be warranted.
