Workshop 113: Access and Diversity of Broadband Internet Access

From various presentations given at the Access and Diversity of Broadband Internet workshop, views from Brazil and India indicate that broadband access to the internet has remained expensive in comparison to mobile phones calling rates. The question then arise that why is this so, while broadband internet is mainly deployed through the same  cellular communications infrastructure (i.e.3G and LTE) which offers mobile voice services?

What policy frameworks can the governments and communication sector regulators put in place to address the issues of broadband access costs and offer diversity in broadband accessibility options?

What business strategies can the communications service providers adopt to help them maintain sustainable business models while at the same time fulfilling the  huge demand of high speed broadband internet access access at affordable cost?
