As businesses and enterprises across the Middle East look to fast track their digitalisation programmes in the wake of the Covid 19 pandemic, we look at the role that full fibre, fixed line connectivity will play in facilitating that process. With the highest fibre to the home (FTTH) penetration levels in the entire world, the UAE is a success story in its own right, when it comes to next generation connectivity.

In this webinar, we will explore the ways in which the UAE can maintain its leading position on fixed line connectivity. This free-to-view webinar will bring together a panel of industry experts from Etisalat, STL and the Boston Consulting Group.

Key Takeaways:

  • The webinar will lift the lid on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for service providers and technology vendors as the UAE continues to lead from the front.
  • This webinar will bring together a panel of industry leading experts to shine a light on what’s next for the fixed line broadband sector.
  • How gigabit fixed line connectivity can help consumers to live full, digital lives in the new post-Covid world and what are the challenges and opportunities lie ahead for operators and service providers?
