Abstract:
This chapter discusses the role of telecommunications infrastructure in the development of the Information Society.

Specifically in this chapter will be presented:

• A brief historical development of telecommunications infrastructure
• The liberalization of telecommunications and the regulatory framework
• The axes of release (unbundled local loop access, spectrum licensing, collocation of telecommunications infrastructure, right of way)
• The unbundling of the local loop (Local Loop Unbundling), available formats and services via LLU
• Definition of the broadband access
• Wired and wireless broadband access technologies
• Technologies Digital Subscriber Line (xDSL)
• Fiber Optic and optical network cost models
• Wireless broadband access technologies (Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G / UMTS, LTE, LMDS, Satellite)
• Broadband penetration (internationally and in Greece)
