Artikel i övriga tidskrifter, 2011
The special issue of Telecommunications Policy focuses on the need of common themes, methodological caveats, and more research to get public support for the deployment of next generation access networks (NGAN). Next generation telecommunications infrastructures are considered as a principal example of a new technology for sustainable economic growth. The most interesting topic raised in the issue is the complete change of paradigm for the deployment of NGAN. Public support is considered a key factor for the regulatory framework where market forces exist and prosper and the leading force behind infrastructure deployment and innovative boosting measures. Asian countries are also found to be playing a key role in the increased focus upon and the deployment of such networks for different uses and applications.
