ANRT at the 11th Global Symposium for Regulators

ANRT participated in the Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR), which held its 11th edition from September 20th to 23rd in Armenia, Colombia.

The deployment of broadband in all network levels requires support, coordination, and commitment at the highest level. The stakes are high because we now live in a world where innovation, instant access to knowledge, and remote data storage is the norm.

The rapid expansion of the digital economy is a tremendous boon to economic and social development. It opens the door to global markets for applications and services, increases production capacity, reduces business costs, and stimulates creativity and innovation.

The growth of broadband networks will hasten this trend.

However, to realize the global potential of broadband, regulators and policy makers will have to find the right balance between regulatory certainty and global liberalization. There are now sufficient technologies to trigger an explosion of interconnected high-speed networks along with an active and competitive market to welcome them. While broadband is increasingly seen as a right of citizenship, smart regulation continues to evolve more towards openness and dynamism while facing challenges and threats as they arise.

The participants of the Global Symposium for Regulators have established guidelines for good practices to promote the deployment of broadband, encourage innovation, and bring digital opportunities to everyone.
