- PRESS RELEASE
Two senior Intel executives will participate in a number of key sessions at ITU Telecom World 2012, during Gitex Technology Week on October 14th to 18th, 2012.
Intel believes that developing countries need to act quickly and aggressively to establish national ICT and broadband penetration.
According to Intel the recipe to solve the problems of access, affordability, and ability includes establishing policies that promote competition and technology innovation; creating national broadband and ICT plans; assigning abundant and flexible use spectrum for wireless broadband; establishing national digital literacy; forming public private partnerships for programmes to further stimulate demand; and most importantly, establishing national 21st century education transformation programmes utilizing broadband and ICT to equip students and teachers for future success.
"We live in an interconnected world where technology is critical and central to economies and in the near future. In the past decade, Intel has invested more than $1bn in over 70 countries to support education worldwide through initiatives such as Intel Teach and Intel Learning Series because ICT development and access is a fundamental component to the global economy," said John Davies.
"We have been collaborating with public and private partners to accelerate broadband adoption and provide social and economic benefits to countries with widespread adoption. We look forward to joining our industry peers during ITU Telecom World 2012 to share our insight and help drive the ICT agenda in the Middle East region," he added.
Prepaid sales models have been making it easier than ever for first-time buyers to engage in the digital world. Today, more than 4 million new users are enjoying packaged solutions that include broadband, PCs and digital content in more than 40 countries that actually offer prepaid programmes. Intel is working with telecom and service providers and ecosystem partners to reach the next billion technology users through prepaid and subscription programmes that combine affordable broadband, PCs, and desirable digital content.
"We are living in a fast changing telecommunications and information technology world where communication and compute are merging and providing new opportunities to connect and enrich the lives of every person on earth," commented Robby Swinnen on Intel's participation in ITU Telecom World.
"Achieving our goals requires industry players and governments to work closely together to enable this vision; gatherings like the ITU Telecom World are very important forums to advance this agenda," Robby added.
