Mobile World Congress 2018

‹ Back
Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry, organised by the GSMA and held in the Mobile World Capital, Barcelona.

Raúl Echeberría, Vice President of Global Engagement, will be speaking on Policies to Expand Access to Mobile.

‘Policies to Expand Access to Mobile’ sits within day two’s theme: Modernising policy for the digital era.

As 4G continues to roll out in most markets, and with 5G on the horizon, what policy levers can be pulled to remove barriers to network investment and expansion? What are the most effective strategies to extend mobile broadband services further into rural and other underserved areas? Likewise, in densely populated cities, what regulatory changes can support the new kinds of network infrastructure that skyrocketing mobile data volumes require?

There is more at stake than mobile broadband access and quality for consumers. Advanced mobile networks are enabling the next wave of connected products, services and systems; the digitisation of virtually every sector and the move towards more efficient and sustainable ‘smart cities.’ This interactive session will discuss policy goals and practical approaches to attract sufficient mobile network investment — a necessity for digital growth and development in every country.
