Urban development

Information & Communication Technologies

Because telecommunications are now a major feature of urban and regional development, Artelia advises governments, local authorities and regulators on the harmonious development of telecommunication and information technologies. Artelia also designs and supervises the installation of communication networks (antennas, broadband loops, etc.). On the international market, Artelia’s ICEA team provides expertise in helping to regulate the technical and economic aspects of the sector (market studies, cost models, interconnection, universal service, ensuring that operators fulfil their obligations, examining disputes, etc.), introduce the private sector (granting of licences, privatisation of traditional utilities), define sector strategies (definition of sector policies, reform of regulations, setting up of regulatory authorities), and define investment projects for operators.
