If you have built or are planning to rollout high speed internet access networks with a different financial model (or their variants) to the 5 described here, please tell us here.
“Fixed-line operators can recover falling revenues and improve their operating costs by deploying fibre networks. But the investments that such networks require are so large that regulatory support of some kind is essential to guarantee that they are able to make a positive business case. Regulators need to manage carefully any shift in their regulatory focus from competition to investment incentives, in order to get the balance right. But they must also avoid continuing regulatory uncertainty, which is delaying the investment in fibre networks that all sides of the industry want. Incumbent fixed operators are mindful of their duty to work with other stakeholders in the industry—government, policymakers, and competitors—to achieve national aspirations.
But to achieve national fibre network coverage, governments and policymakers may need to re-examine their current approach to regulation.”
