The Dynamics of Public Private Collaboration in Next-Generation Access Infrastructure

Initiatives in municipal broadband have been one of the major changes in the telecom landscape in the last decade and are an accelerating trend. This is particularly significant in Europe, where both the telecom ecosystem and the regulatory framework have begun to adapt to this new reality. This report looks in depth into this trend, to identify the players involved and the consequences for public and private players. We also explore in this report the financing mechanisms, how they work, and the key success factors for municipal broadband projects.

Whether you are a municipality considering broadband deployment, an operator looking into partnerships with municipalities, a vendor examining this new emerging market or a policy maker or lobbyist wanting to clarify the field, this report will help you understand this specific trend.
