Finally policy makers are focusing on rights of way

πηγή OECD - 18 06 2008

A new paper from the Organization for Economic Development (”OECD”) recognizes the importance of rights of way to sustainable competition for next generation networks. Some note worthy quotes include:
“The limitations faced by new entrants are significant, especially with respect to the reach of their existing networks and their ability to obtain access to rights of way and ducts. It is thus difficult for new entrants to replicate an NGN access infrastructure.”
“In addition, a large percentage of costs in rolling out new fibre networks are construction costs related to conduits and rights of way. Construction costs could be significantly higher for operators if they do not already have access to rights of way and ducts.”
