Future Regulation for Inclusive Connectivity
One of the key features of INFOFEST 2019 in Montenegro was an ITU regional regulatory forum for Europe titled “Future Regulation for Inclusive Connectivity.” The forum encouraged dialogue between stakeholders on policies regarding broadband development and overcoming the challenges of adopting high-speed networks. Through five forum sessions, over 140 participants from 10 countries discussed future opportunities for inclusive connectivity. Afterward, the five key sessions of the forum were published as a report under the same title. Future Regulation for Inclusive Connectivity outlines the forum and the dialogue that ensued among participants. Participants discussed national 5G strategies and policies, spectrum policy supporting European Gigabit Society development, innovative approaches to boost investment in the gigabit infrastructure, and emerging issues in regulation fostering inclusive connectivity.
