Event: Future of Wireless International Conference 2014
Date: 30 June – 1 July 2014
Venue: Cambridge, UK
What: Silver Sponsors
FWIC this year is on a subject Real Wireless really believes in. We all know phones & smartphones have dramatic effects on GDP and on quality of life. It is no exaggeration to say mobile has the opportunity to improve living standards around the world in a way not seen since the industrial revolution or the agrarian “green revolution”. But not all places are equal: while city centres or rich suburbs may have great service, sparsely populated ones have less. And that is true whether it is the rural highlands of Scotland, or the developing areas of sub-saharan Africa.
So how do we get coverage to those places?
What are the economic drivers?
How do make sure networks are useful and not congested?
What can we do to make sure those benefits reach those who will most benefit?
We’ll be discussing this issues at FWIC, and we will be announcing a major new initiative to help address them.
