This paper proposes a conceptual model for the study of broadband adoption by drawing on literature from a range of academic disciplines and commercial research. Broadband has entered the start of the 'early majority' (Rogers 2003) adoption phase by mainstream consumers with approximately 25% of Australia's 7.6 million households currently having a broadband Internet connection. What takes a mainstream consumer from 'awareness' to the purchase of a broadband service? This is an important question, as it is the adoption by mainstream consumers which will provide the critical mass required to make it viable to deliver new government and commercial services via broadband.
