Next Practices Live: ICT Working Group – post pandemic telecommunications on May 12, 2020

How is the COVID-19 crisis changing the shape of telecommunications? What will broadband look like on the other side of the pandemic? What are the strategic imperatives for network providers? For government officials?

John Reid, the former CEO of Cable & Wireless, joined Next Practice Live to share his insights on these issues. John has about 30 years of experience in telecommunications, including executive positions in Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America. He also served as President of C&W’s Consumer Division and Chairman of Bahamas Telecommunications Company.

We discussed with John how the pandemic is changing the economics of the telecommunications business, how investments are changing, the future of competition, and where the most exciting innovations will emerge.
