Stavänger Shows Podcasts

On the 10th and 11th of April 2008 the OECD organised a workshop in Stavänger, Norway, on fibre investment and policy challenges.

This workshop focused on investment across the OECD and looked at best practices across a range of investment scenarios and looked at how regulations concerning fibre are evolving in OECD countries and how to ensure that these networks help promote effective competition.

Benoît Felten, Senior Analyst for the Yankee Group, performed a series of interviews there with the key speakers at this workshop on Next Generation Access Networks. The end result can be found in two podcasts, entitled the Stavänger Show.
