Information about the project
Broadband workshop series
APEC TEL Members agreed at TEL 26 in August 2002 to organize a series of three workshops, to address new technologies and evolving needs, which would culminate in a report to TELMIN 6. The workshops sought to foster an exchange of information and sharing of experiences relating to broadband development. Discussion addressed issues of the role of governments, opportunities and challenges of broadband deployment, issues of business facilitation, human resource development and sustainability, and economic development faced by APEC economies and industry in broadband rollout.
