Theme: Broadband fulfilling the promise of communications
While Broadband in the West is necessary to resolve congestion, in the developing world it is a bringer of hope, a tool of progress and a promise of prosperity. There, Broadband opens up capabilities with giant leaps rather than step-by-step, and make possible ideas such as desert techno-cities, high-tech tourism, remote contact centres and more. Broadband connects these regions to the world centres of business activities and allows numerous new initiatives to flourish. Reliable connectivity is the foundation of lasting business relationships – the promise of communication.
