new! Post Connect Americas Summit Report
Broadband overview in the Americas
The present Report provides an update on the development of broadband networks and policies in the Americas since the
Connect Americas Summit (CAS) held in Panamá in 2012.
This report provides an update on the development of broadband networks and policies in the Americas. In brief, countries in the region have generally continued to make good progress in expanding access to broadband; subscriber figures have risen and policy frameworks continue to be implemented and revised. However, additional potential for growth and improvement remains. As ITU D continues to undertake activities intended to improve broadband access on a global basis, the countries in the Americas are working to develop regional initiatives intended to guide future ITU D efforts. This paper will discuss the state of broadband in the Americas, present an overview of policy and regulatory frameworks, examine relevant ITU D activities and regional initiatives, and present recommendations to promote the rapid uptake and development of broadband.
