1 Committed to Connecting the World Developing successful PPPs to foster investment in universal broadband networks ITU Regional Experts Group Meeting for Europe, 14 November 2012, Geneva Dr Matt Yardley, Partner, Analysys Mason The views expressed in this presentation are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the ITU or its Membership.

2 Committed to Connecting the World The report is aimed at helping PPP projects achieve better outcomes  Using public funds more effectively  Monitoring outcomes vs objectives  Managing risks (budget, timing)  Stimulating and creating demand 2

3 Committed to Connecting the World We looked at 13 PPP broadband projects around the world 3 Kenya Qatar Saudi Arabia Argentina The Dominican Republic Paraguay Malaysia Mongolia Pakistan Latvia Singapore Slovakia Lithuania Wide range of projects, from local access to submarine cable

4 Committed to Connecting the World Key findings: Best practices in establishing successful projects  Conduct a public consultation  Consider multiple investment models and funding  Be technology neutral  Conduct pilot projects  Provide funding in line with milestones and targets  Mandate open access and monitor compliance  Consider setting up parallel initiatives to stimulate demand 4

5 Committed to Connecting the World Conduct a public consultation  Potential stakeholders include:  end users  telecommunication operators  other government agencies  local authorities  equipment vendors 5 Examples: Dominican Republic RBC Project (industry and users) ; Saudi Arabia Universal Service Project (public consultation; levy idea tested)

6 Committed to Connecting the World Consider multiple investment models and funding  Mixed broadband projects (access/core networks, urban/rural/international connectivity) may need to consider:  different investment models  Public design/build/operate (DBO) and public outsourcing (PO)  different funding sources  Universal service funding and government grants 6 Examples: Argentina Connected (core is public DBO; urban access is PO) ; Malaysia National Broadband Initiative (grants for urban, USF for rural)

7 Committed to Connecting the World Be technology neutral  Projects should not be limited to one technology  difficult topographies  lack of last-mile copper access  backhaul may be challenging  Authorities should consider operators’ capabilities  expertise working with technology and operating networks 7 Examples: Pakistan USF Broadband Programme (DSL, HSPA and WiMAX in unserved urban and rural areas)

8 Committed to Connecting the World Conduct pilot projects  Test the ability of the project to meet its objectives  Identify risks  Identify key learning points 8 Examples: Saudi Arabia Universal Service Project; Dominican Republic RBC; Mongolia WiFi/VSAT

9 Committed to Connecting the World Provide funding in line with milestones and targets  The timing of payments could be based on:  roll-out plan (coverage, and availability of services)  take-up of services 9 Examples: Pakistan USF Broadband Programme (technical auditor role)

10 Committed to Connecting the World Mandate open access and monitor compliance  Promotes competition  Supports innovation  Minimises market distortion  State aid rules require open access (EC) 10

11 Committed to Connecting the World Consider setting up parallel initiatives to stimulate demand  Provide free or subsidised laptops/netbooks  Establish centres to train people  Establish centres to provide access to broadband  Provide general ICT training 11 Examples: Argentina Connected (netbooks for 1.9m students); Dominican Republic RBC Project (website development assistance); Pakistan USF Broadband Programme (community and education broadband centres)

12 Committed to Connecting the World Thank you Dr Matt Yardley, Partner, Analysys Mason
