Motivation and overview
"In the 21st century, affordable, ubiquitous broadband networks will be as critical to social and economic prosperity as networks like transport, water and power. Not only does broadband deliver benefits across every sector of society, but it also helps promote social and economic development" (Touré, 2014). Currently there is a dearth of empirical research supported by hard data on the technological, economic and societal determinants of broadband impact at the rural, regional and national level. This special issue has two objectives
1. publish empirical research on the technological, economic, and societal determinants of broadband impact at the rural, regional and national level in a digital future,
2. to articulate a research agenda for the Information Systems discipline in collaboration with other disciplines to provide leadership in developing, implementing and evaluating broadband initiatives at the rural, regional and national levels in a digital future.
Academics from around the world are invited to submit research papers which examine the technological, economic and societal determinants of broadband initiatives at the rural, regional and national level in a digital future.
Recognising the diversity of this field of research we encourage submissions focusing on all aspects of broadband initiatives at the rural, regional and national level from technological issues and applications such as adoption and use of high-speed broadband, regulatory issues associated with broadband networks, roll-out of fibre optic networks, and 4G mobile networks at rural, regional and national levels, economic issues such as the impact of broadband on jobs, productivity and economic growth, and building a knowledge-based economy through to the societal issues associated with broadband such as the digital divide at macro and micro levels determined by availability of broadband access, digital equality and digital literacy required to participate effectively in a digital future. Both theoretical and empirical papers as well as theory-based case studies are welcomed.
Some prospective topics on the technological, economic and societal determinants of broadband initiatives at rural, regional and national levels in a digital future include but are not limited to:
· Digital Divide between Urban and Rural, Regional and Indigenous Communities
· Broadband and Productivity at Macro and Micro Levels in the Economy
· Impact of Broadband Internet on Jobs and Economic Growth
· Digital Usage Divide in Rural and Regional Communities
· Issues of Broadband Internet Speed and Availability in Rural, Remote and Indigenous Communities
· Adoption of High-Speed Broadband - Fibre Optic, Satellite and Mobile networks
· Adoption of High Speed Broadband - Macro and Micro Studies
· Regional, National and International Broadband Demand and Availability
· IS to improve Broadband Investment Decisions and Allocation of Public Money
· IS to Support National and Regional Broadband Regulation
Preferred paper length 6000-8000 words in total
