Abstract

Governments around the globe are rapidly introducing e-government initiatives with the role of the Internet being regarded as pertinent. Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) offer the capacity to an improved Internet. Broadband technology is a form of ICT that is currently being adopted and diffused in many countries. In this paper we outline how the role of the government can sustain broadband adoption. We use a framework developed by King et al. (1994) regarding institutional actions related to IT diffusion and examine the institutional actions taken by the South Korean government (hereafter referred as Korea) and we compare them with relevant policies pursued in Britain (hereafter referred as UK). We demonstrate that a comparison between the IT policies of the two countries allows research to extract the “success factors” in government intervention in supporting technology diffusion, in order to render favourable results if applied elsewhere.
