Global - Economic Crisis - Strategic Developments for Comms during the Crisis


Archived report. This report was archived in 2010 and has not been updated since. The financial crisis has led to a major rethink on how the various political, social and economic systems operate. Instead of repairing broken systems, new approaches are being developed which are better-suited to the current environment. Telecoms investments play a key role in most economic stimulus packages. And with government involvement, we can work on ways to use the telecommunications networks for the national good. BuddeComm has been involved in generating government policies around open networks, structural separation and trans-sectoral developments on three continents. This report discusses some of the high-level strategic developments occurring as a result of the economic crisis. A separate report discusses in more detail the importance of maintaining this momentum of change beyond the crisis; See Global - Economic Crisis - Strategic Vision for Comms after the Crisis.
