It made it possible to raise awareness of all potential players in the sector on the issues linked to the development of very high speed broadband and to the pooling of infrastructures, to provide an overview of the approaches implemented in different countries to promote pooling, by presenting best practices and understanding the necessary prerequisites that led to their success. The workshop addressed, in its 1st part, the challenges of THDs (fixed and mobile) by learning about different examples of co-financing of telecommunications infrastructures. In its 2nd part, the workshop reviewed the experiences of national and international actors (Ireland, France, etc.) which were the subject of discussions between the participants. Thus, in addition to the global national telecommunications operators who are deploying their THD development strategy, certain other national actors (ONCF, ONEE, LYDEC, etc.) took part in the workshop to present their visions in relation to their potential roles as operators of alternative infrastructures in the development of THD in Morocco.
