New ICT services like cloud computing, big data analytics, video on demand, e-health and e-government benefit from exponential growth of processing power and storage capacity. However, these services depend on increasingly powerful broadband infrastructures.

The purpose of this project is to provide a multidimensional overview of the current empirical literature on the economic impact of broadband internet. This literature review supports decision-makers to make evidence-based investment decisions.
