Understanding broadband technologies

Each wave of technological development offers new promise in the battle to bridge the Digital Divide. Most new technologies are cheaper to deploy than legacy copper networks, and at the same time, they can deliver a full range of ICT services, from voice to broadband applications and services. Many new technologies can also be deployed incrementally, even locally, rather than on the large scale of traditional tele com mu ni cation networks.
