Wireless Broadband in Australian outback

Huawei's 2009 Corporate Social Responsibility Report makes interesting reading. This mentions use of wireless broadband by Optus for Bridging the Digital Divide in outback Australia.

Huawei also makes claims about Environmental Protection, but unfortunately these do not appear to be substantiated. As an example Huawei claimed to have finished evaluating the lifecycle of major products, but presented no evidence to support this claim. Also Huawei claimed to have a "Green Product Certification Program" but provided no details as to what standards certification was being done, or what independent organisation undertook the certification (it would be meaningless for Huawei to certify itself).
