image of Policy, Regulatory and Technical Aspects of the Migration from Existing Networks to Broadband Networks in Developing Countries

This report is the culmination of the work completed under study Question 1/1 which examined policy, regulatory, operational, and technical issues associated with the transition from narrowband to broadband networks. The report includes country experiences and best practice guidelines to promote affordable broadband networks, services, and applications including those that stimulate demand for broadband such as e-education, e-health, m-banking, m-commerce, mobile money transfer, and over-the-top services (OTT). The report shares polices to promote broadband deployment through effective competition, public and private investment, inter-platform competition, broadband stimulus, and universal service funds. Examples of experiences and policies facilitating the transition from narrowband to broadband networks, including from IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) to and through deployment of IPv6, are also featured.
