Australia in global top 5 for internet
A new report has found that Australia provides the fourth best internet service in the world, yet Australians are calling for the Federal Government to invest more in internet infrastructure.
The Servcorp International Internet Report, which questioned 7,500 business people in 24 countries, found that Australia has one of the best internet services in the world, behind the USA, Japan and Singapore.
Despite this, Australians are still not happy with 85.4 percent believing the Government should invest more in internet infrastructure and 49.2 percent are calling for better regulation of telecommunication companies. A further 20.4 percent believe the internet service in this country is below average, bad or terrible.
Marcus Moufarrige, Servcorp’s general manager of South East Asia said it is disappointing to see that Australians don’t rate the internet services in this country as highly as others.
“There is a great opportunity for us as a nation to improve our internet systems. There is no reason why we can’t be leading the way with in the virtual world alongside the USA, Japan and Singapore,” he said.
