One of the main measures of globalization is technological connectivity. Connectivity occurs is at the local level via broadband access. A large proportion of national employment is in the service sector and information management is a major component of these jobs. Without a robust telecommunications infrastructure economic and social development can be depressed and productivity growth dampened. A robust telecommunications infrastructure may also contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and assist in conservation measures by allowing more work to be performed at home. This presentation investigates the nexus of telecommunications, competitiveness, and sustainability at the municipal level.
