Meeting Held in Uruguay to Consider Current Issues Affecting the Future of the Internet

Leaders of organizations responsible for coordination of the Internet technical infrastructure globally have met in Montevideo, Uruguay, to consider current issues affecting the future of the Internet. Discussion included:

Reinforcing the importance of globally coherent Internet operations, and warning against Internet fragmentation at a national level. Participants expressed strong concern over the undermining of the trust and confidence of Internet users globally due to recent revelations of pervasive monitoring and surveillance.

Identifying the need for ongoing effort to address Internet Governance challenges, and agreement to catalyze community-wide efforts towards the evolution of global multistakeholder Internet cooperation.

Calling for accelerating the globalization of ICANN and IANA functions, towards an environment in which all stakeholders, including all governments, participate on an equal footing.

They also called for the transition to IPv6 to remain a top priority globally. In particular Internet content providers must serve content with both IPv4 and IPv6 services, in order to be fully reachable on the global Internet.

African Network Information Center (AFRINIC)

John Curran, CEO
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
