A PICS Telecom blog » 5 Reasons why telecoms are important in society.
1. Telecommunication & information accessibility.
New communication and information technologies are contributing to increased accessibility to information sharing. Telecommunications and digital communication are aiding in keeping citizens informed at a faster, more efficient rate than ever before. Individuals and society in general, are more aware of what’s going on within their immediate environment and around the globe. This pushes many governments to become more accountable and transparent in order to maintain an efficient system, factoring in increased collective participation.
2. Telecommunication and relationships.
As telecommunications and digital connection scales, it enables people to stay in touch in ways we have not previously experienced. Global figures indicate that migratory displacement is at an all-time high, enhanced by the Covid-19 pandemic, friends, and families are separated for long periods of time. The evolving nature of telecoms has enabled people to stay connected.
3. Telecommunication and education.
Educational institutions across the globe are increasingly reling on telecommunications and digital connectivity for distance learning programs. Providing students with an opportunity to access high-quality education from anywhere in the world, at their convenience, which similarly hosts the same knock-on effect that telecommunications currently has on our working lives, opens the doors to increased flexibility.
4. Telecommunication and healthcare.
The role telecoms play in healthcare has enabled more frequent contact between patients and healthcare providers, more timely and accurate medical monitoring, and improved management of data. The increasing level of connection between institutes, workers, and patients helps in the development of medical services.
5. Telecommunication and environment.
Scaling communication has enabled us to raise greater awareness for environmental issues across the globe. Increased telecommunications and digital connectivity can make a direct contribution, from the action of environmental programs to the increased capacity for education and information sharing.
