The rollout of ubiquitous high speed broadband infrastructure via the National
Broadband Network project will have potentially dramatic impacts on Australian
businesses, in terms of presenting both increased opportunities and new competitive
threats. There is a need to better understand how improved broadband infrastructure
will impact on business innovation capabilities, activities and performance, and what
types of policies and programs are required to maximise opportunities offered by
ubiquitous access. This requires data and information on current business usage of the
internet across all industry sectors, firm sizes and regions, and monitoring of changes
over time. Although detailed data is available for business internet usage at the
national level, there is a distinctive lack of state level data I.
The aim of this report is to present a set of baseline data and indicators on business
internet usage in the Tasmanian economy, generated from the 2010 Tasmanian
Innovation Census (TIC) databases. Though commentary is provided on tables and
charts presented, extensive analysis of the data is not within the scope of this report.
The first part of the report describes the methodology of the Census and presents
some basic industry structure and business demographic data. The main part of the
report presents the specific data and indicators derived from the 2010 Census
questions on internet usage.
