PTC Broadband Reports
The PTC Broadband Reports initiative aims to provide key decision-makers, industry professionals, and other stakeholders with a knowledge base for developing common methods and approaches to best serve the needs of citizens and bridge the knowledge divide.
Each Report will concentrate on an individual micromarket and offer insights about the key features that will push broadband forward in other non-obvious emerging markets with different dynamics and resources throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
