MetadataShow full item record
This thesis will focus on the area of telecommunications technologies and policies, as developed and adopted in Latin America. Though the whole of Latin America would provide a great area of research interest, this thesis will delve into the countries of Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. These three countries play vital roles in the development of Latin America, and retain unique relationships with the United States as allies and trade partners. The exploration of telecommunications, policy and how it has influenced regional development, will be explored. Specifically, analysis of policies, regulatory bodies, and agreements in comparison to the rates of growth in the last one to two decades will be examined. Through the discovery of principal actors, infrastructure, resources for development, and the creation and conforming to policies, a potential outlook for continued growth and expansion throughout Latin American can be produced. Additionally, the extent that these actors have developed locally and regionally, through the use of political and international agreements, could further assist in this endeavor. Finally, an overall comparison between these countries, Latin America, and the United States' own policies and regulations will enable further insight for recommendations of continued development within the United States and Latin American.
