These challenges also include Information and Communication Technology (ICT) deployment. This means pushing horizontal development to drive convergence among different sectors in order to increase and improve quality of life for Latin American citizens.BrechaCero.com was created with this goal in mind, focusing particularly on the use of wireless broadband networks. This is a blog produced by 5G Americas to promote and raise awareness for this type of ICT initiative. This open-access blog will provide information a wide range of initiatives, services and trends and look at the way technology is used to improve people’s quality of life. It will also have support from a number of contributors, such as analysts and other industry representatives who will provide interviews and write columns.
