Activity: Fiber Optic Penetration
 
Activity description: The UAE has embarked on a number of ambitious projects to develop the performance of the IT and telecommunications infrastructure and ultimately facilitate reach by replacing copper-based wires with fiber optics. The country also is leading the world in the use of fiber optics. Very soon, Abu Dhabi will be the first capital in the world to entirely depend on fiber optics. Since its inception, the TRA has followed a visionary strategy in support of the ICT sector in the UAE by safeguarding competition, providing fair access to the domestic infrastructure, and ensuring the optimal use of natural resources through implementation of best practice in every area.
