Omar Jaffrey appeared on Bloomberg TV to discuss Melody's role in the growth and implementation of wireless infrastructure
October 30, 2020
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Omar Jaffrey discussed the inevitable rise to data consumption in coming years by 10 times what it is now. There is a growing demand for data consumption, and organizations like Melody Investment Advisors are helping this demand by fostering partnerships between wireless carriers and investors. Additionally, with this growth, the US government will need to play a significant role to build infrastructure and decrease the red tape around infrastructure investments. Currently, about 150 million Americans have poor internet infrastructure, but there is plenty of room to improve this and a strong demand to do so. Other national wireless markets are ahead of the US in infrastructure and telecom investments, but the US is not far behind and it has the opportunity to capitalize on the industry’s growth. Accelerated growth in the US telecom investments will occur and the country will catch up to other wireless markets like China, Japan, and South Korea.
