The race is on to improve internet access across the globe, as millions of people remain unconnected or underserved. While fiber is usually the optimal choice for broadband deployments, there are circumstances where it’s not economically viable. In those cases, next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) and hybrid networks are able to deliver fiber-class broadband at a fraction of the time and cost. ngFWA creates enormous value in both rural areas with little or no broadband, as well as urban and residential areas where the introduction of healthy competition can improve affordability and subscriber experiences.
Join Tarana CEO Basil Alwan on Thursday, September 22, at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m PT to learn how providers around the world, including some of the largest U.S. broadband grant recipients, are leveraging ngFWA in unlicensed or licensed spectrum to deliver reliable, high-speed internet service. He and INCOMPAS CEO Chip Pickering, will dive into how hybrid networks are helping close the digital divide sooner than anyone thought possible.
