Since the financial crisis began many governments around the world have looked at ways to use infrastructure investments to stimulate the economy. Broadband infrastructure offers a multiplier investment effect and has trans-sector social and economic benefits for healthcare, education, energy, environment, as well as for telecoms and media (in the USA this is called national purpose).
National broadband infrastructure includes both backbone networks and last-mile solutions. It is mainly fibre-based but also has wireless elements. It is not just for the big cities; it is for rural areas also. This list shows the reports that cover these national broadband initiatives.
In 2009 Paul contacted me and we engaged in the brainstorming sessions that led to the development of the UN Broadband Commission for Digital Development.
Paul is a visionary with a keen strategic approach. He is a powerful communicator, provides succinct analyses and has a complete knowledge of all the key information and communications technologies relating to broadband.
