Broadband in Latin America

Beyond connectivity

image of Broadband in Latin America
The policy analyses and proposals presented in this book focus on national programmes to foster universal broadband access and the debate on Internet neutrality. The study of the current trends highlights the progress of cloud computing and the new developments induced by the entrance of over-the-top operators in the Latin American and Caribbean region. This book underscores the need to expand regional and national Internet traffic exchange points (IXPs) and the relevance of the increasing demand gap, which poses new challenges beyond those related to access and connectivity.




In November 2010, the editors of this book published Fast-tracking the digital revolution: Broadband for Latin America and the Caribbean, which put forth that broadband is the cornerstone of a system for economic, organizational and social innovation that, in conjunction with complementary assets (infrastructure, skills, production structure), was driving a positive dynamic across all economic and social sectors.
