Getting people connected to broadband

Thursday, May 12, 2022

Broadband expansion is on the mind of every public official, broadband provider, and customer. With so many countries testing new solutions and improving traditional approaches to getting broadband into more people’s hands, it is important that we compare notes and learn from each other. What are the most economical ways to expand availability? What best helps low-income households? How should governments experiencing budget problems consider broadband as part of their economic development strategies?

We partnered with CANTO, the leading authority on ICT in the Caribbean region, to discuss these questions and more. David Cox and I compared notes on our broadband experiences in the Caribbean and in the US. David is the Chairman of CANTO and Head of Regulatory Affairs for Cable & Wireless – Caribbean, and so is the perfect person for examining the Caribbean experience.
