Connect-World is delighted to showcase Iceland, one of the first countries in the world to complete the digitalisation of its networks and provide every business and household access to the telephone network. Here, Gustav Arnar explains why the geographical location of Iceland, once considered a drawback in international commerce, is now being transformed in the electronic age. Icelanders will be looking to achieve an open market in telecoms to promote industrial and commercial activity and stimulate the economy.
