Bridging Gaps, Building Opportunities: Broadband as a Catalyst for Economic Growth and Social Progress in Latin America and the Caribbean

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has published a new report, “Bridging Gaps, Building Opportunities: Broadband as a Catalyst for Economic Growth and Social Progress in Latin America and the Caribbean,” which is the product of discussions between the IDB and a wide array of stakeholders, including technology companies, multinational and national telecommunications operators, academic institutions and international agencies. Daniel Leza, TMG Vice President, Legal and Regulatory, served on the Technical Committee that peer reviewed the report.

According to the report, broadband is expanding rapidly in Latin America and the Caribbean, but the region still lags behind the world’s most advanced nations in terms of coverage, access and adoption of information and communication technology services delivered through fast networks.
