HOW ARE CARRIERS STAYING RELEVANT IN THE AGE OF DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION?
Undergoing continuous innovation is fundamental to stay relevant in the age of digital transformation. Most recently, key regional players have focused on expanding their regional footprint by increasing investment on new infrastructure, opting to boost their M&A activity and diversifying their products. Simultaneously, price erosion is a key concern and many carriers are rethinking strategies to maximise the use of their capacity and as a result alternative business models have emerged. In this regard, the wholesale telecoms sector has enjoyed an unprecedented dynamism across the region. This session, will assess new business models, demand of regional services, emerging technology hubs and opportunities to invest.

INTERACTIVE PANEL DISCUSSION: HOW IS THE ANDEAN REGION STAYING CONNECTED?
The Andean region covers over 4,726,000 km2 and most recently has experienced a boost in infrastructure investment. With new cables planned across the region and demand doubling every year, the Andean region is undergoing a much-needed period of significant digital transformation. For instance, according to Akamai’s “State of the Internet Report” the current average connection speed ranges from 1.8 Mbps and 6.2 Mbps, with the highest for the continent being 18.7 Mbps.
Consequently, more emphasis needs to be placed on enabling investment in backbone network infrastructure and an increase in the number of submarine cables covering the Pacific coast to raise high speed connectivity to world-class levels. As a result, these changes will play a fundamental role in boosting average connection speeds and closing the digital gap. This panel will discuss the current trends in internet usage, an overview of the digital landscape and industry updates.
