17:30 – 17:50 Redefining Connectivity. Implications for Cities, Governments, Policies & Business’
COVID-19 changed many things, among them our notion of connectivity and its relevance. Forget the 30Mbps broadband — that’s obsolete — but also forget the mythical internet surfer, now Zoomer! Connectivity now goes beyond speed, it is about being able to be, act and thrive in a new era where physical and virtual are confused.
