Using broadband for environmental sustainability

Award winning papers from our friends down under showing how broadband can be use to achieve environmental stability. Three papers are at this link and 5 more will be available in the Feb. Journal.

Here's a little taste for you: one paper did an analysis of the environmental impact of fibre-versus-copper access networks. It shows that in a year of usage, someone on an FTTN/DSL service costs the environment 190 kg CO2 emissions versus 109 kg for a user on a FTTH(PON) connection.
