Unlocking broadband for all: Broadband infrastructure sharing policies and strategies in emerging markets

(April 2015, )

In the quest for universal access, this study shows that the cost of network deployment can be dramatically reduced if operators collaborate with each other in deploying fibre optic backbones or masts for wireless broadband. The report points out that even greater savings can be made if other utilities such as roads, rail lines, pipelines and power grids share their infrastructure with network operators. This makes it feasible for small network operators to enter the market, which increases competition, making netwwork access more affordable and more widespread.

The full report includes the Appendix with the 10 country case studies (Côte d’Ivoire, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Philippines, South Africa, Thailand and Uganda).
