The mobile industry has made incredible progress in delivering internet connectivity around the world. Over 3.5 billion people globally are now connected to mobile internet, and the percentage living outside a broadband network has more than halved since 2014.
Mobile broadband use not only facilitates communication, but also vastly improves access to life-enhancing information and services, and has been proven to drive economic growth.
However, millions of people still do not live within reach of a mobile broadband network. Delivering this connectivity is increasingly becoming an economic challenge, and innovation is needed to reduce the cost and difficulty of deployments.
In this webinar recording you will learn about:
– The importance of closing the coverage gap in rural and remote locations;
– The challenges of deploying mobile broadband infrastructure in these areas;
– Potential innovations and business models that could connect the unconnected.
