Abstract

Despite being separated by the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, small island developing states in the Pacific have gained a stronger sense as a subregional community to act on mutual development concerns with the advent of broadband Internet. Broadband as a form of Internet access provides high call-up speeds, and is offered via digital subscriber line, fibre optic cable and satellite. Broadband connectivity has enabled technological innovations and smart applications that can help address policy challenges in a wide range of development sectors.
