Digitalizing is a Must
The widespread extension of connectivity, along with a growing quantity of information generated by smart objects, opens completely new scenarios. The world of industry, for example, can face projects of transformation towards "smart factories," with greater efficiency, flexible and personalized production, planning of phases of work, and a resulting increase in competitiveness. To include the largest number of actors in this process, it is necessary to accompany the development of infrastructure with initiatives that stimulate the demand for ultrafast services, such as "connectivity vouchers" aimed at businesses and families. In addition, the integration between existing infrastructure and new generation infrastructure must be stimulated, avoiding duplication and correcting the regulatory framework.
