Today, more than 50% of the world’s population lives in cities. That number is expected to grow to 66% by 2050! In an era with smartphones, smart cars and smart homes, isn’t it about time we start building smarter cities?

When these investments are not planned and carried out as part of an overarching framework, success and ROI are limited. However, there is one common denominator to all the necessary investments. Addressing this common denominator can have significant impact on these modern urban challenges. This common denominator is a superfast broadband network infrastructure.
