Global alliance launches to support worldwide investment in digital infrastructure in preparation for 5G
IDIA will help drive global digital infrastructure roll-outs across developed and developing markets, supported by the IFC, the World Bank Group private sector arm
The International Digital Infrastructure Alliance (IDIA) will launch on December 3 at the TowerXchange Meetup Asia 2019 to provide a unified global voice for the wireless tower industry. Founded by major tower companies (towercos), the Alliance is a direct response to an urgent need for globally recognised regulatory best practise for the deployment of digital infrastructure, crucial for investment in increasingly densified networks.
With particular focus on developing markets, and working in collaboration with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a private sector arm of the World Bank Group, the IDIA will help avoid fragmentation in the regulatory environment and secure the long-term infrastructure investments required for sustainable densification worldwide.
