He received a B.E. in Electrical Engineering from Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from State University of New York at Stony Brook, USA.

His research interests include the economics of service competition in open-access Next-Generation platforms, the digital dividend, and the efficient sharing and allocation of radio spectrum. He has pioneered the application of agent-based computational methods to simulate and analyse new conditions of competition and regulation in Next-Generation networks and the consumer’s fibre uptake problem in the context of national broadband deployments.

An academic visitor to the US FCC, CITI Columbia University Business School, EECS Department of UC Berkeley, INRIA Rennes, France, and UPC Barcelona, Spain, he has consulted for various government agencies and telecommunications operators in New Zealand, Colombia, Uruguay and the United States.

  • Why Next Generation Access networks? 2013 Trends showing in some parts of the world (Given, 2010): “Shared conviction about the anticipated size of fast broadband’s economic and social benefits” The University of Auckland New Zealand (Reynolds, 2009): • “Broadband networks are increasingly recognised as fundamental for economic and social development.” • “They serve as communication and transaction platforms for the entire economy and can improve productivity across all sectors.” • “Advanced communication networks are a key component of innovative ecosystems and support economic growth.”
  • Why government participation? The University of Auckland New Zealand 2013 (Given, 2010): • Australia and New Zealand were perceived to be lagging. Both were well behind the OECD average for total broadband penetration in early 2000s. • Incumbents not investing in fibre access networks. • “The big ones were not consistently aggressive enough; the aggressive ones were not big enough” • Shift away from the liberalization and privatization policy consensus that dominated the last two decades. Question: Will a wholesale-only fixed access network operation maximize those benefits?
  • 2013 New Zealand The University of Auckland Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN)
  • National Broadband Network NBN (before September 2013 election) 2013 March 2009 2011 The University of Auckland New Zealand Sept 2012 Australian Labor government announces plans to invest A$ 40 billion in NBN.

  • 2013 New Zealand The University of Auckland New Zealand’s dual approach: Ultra-Fast Broadband Network (UFB) and Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI)
  • Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) and Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) Election led National Party to government 2009 NZ Government pledged $1.5 billion investment in a nationwide broadband infrastructure, which will bring broadband to all Kiwis • UFB Ultra-Fast Broadband 75% of HH • RBI Rural Broadband Initiative 25% of HH The University of Auckland New Zealand 2013 2008 First six years on priority broadband users • businesses • schools • health services • plus green field developments and certain tranches of residential areas 2011 Tender procedure for a Public Private Partnership GPON deployment won by four companies: • 3 Local Fibre Companies • Chorus (former incumbent, demerged)
