Impacts of Broadband Study – Have Your Say

National Broadband Technology Roll Out – quantifying the impacts on local communities

Council is seeking your experience as a City of Prospect business or resident, with the impact of broadband in your home or organisation.
The purpose of your feedback is to gain perspective about how communities and individuals use information and communications technology as the foundation for building inclusive, sustainable prosperity. The survey is online, confidential and will only take 5-10 minutes.

How do communities use information and communications technology as the foundation for building inclusive, sustainable prosperity?

Our vision is that City of Prospect will continue to be recognized as one of Adelaide’s leading, liveable, and integrated cities. With a vibrant, enterprising and diverse business sector, we will actively support our regional economy, embrace new technologies and fully engage in the 21st Century global economy. Communities have and will continue to be impacted by changing technology. The City of Prospect developed the first Digital Economy Strategy in Australia that was recognized both locally and nationally as the “best Digital Economy Strategy in Australia.” It has been internationally recognized as one of the world’s top 21 smart communities by the New York based Intelligent Communities Foundation five out of the last six years.

The City of Prospect was one of the first Council areas in Australia to receive the National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout and we understand that intelligent communities work long and hard to adapt to the challenges of the Broadband Economy, and seek to clearly identify the impact of Council investment in developing acceptance and use of this new technology.

The University of South Australia researchers are using information from the City of Prospect to develop new benchmarks and measures, to be used by Councils across Australia.
