The cost and constant need for capital in the telecommunications industry has been a challenge as some of these assets need to be amortized over an operational period longer than 30 years. This has led to oligopolies with the incumbents and have led to important social challenges such as the digital divide and rural connectivity. The expectations of stock and corporate performance are often incompatible with the nature of these assets. Similar to water systems, power systems, railroads and roads, digital infrastructures are the backbone of tomorrow’s economy with digital goods and services that will touch all aspects of our lives. This is why Digital Ubiquity believes that projects will continue to be a mix of public and private partnerships at different levels.
