International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies, September 2012.
The purpose of this report is to highlight the best practices used by public-private partnership (PPP) projects - whether they have been used to provide broadband access nationally, regionally, or in rural areas - to improve broadband access to unserved and underserved locations. The report is based on 13 PPP broadband projects that have been researched. It takes a broad definition of what PPP means and includes any project where there is a mix of private- and public-sector involvement. The report does not intend to focus on the approach followed by any single PPP broadband project, or to promote any one project, but to provide an overall view of the best practices implemented.
