A new report has been released by Analysys Mason suggesting recent proposals to regulate the global Internet will harm growth and innovation worldwide.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will hold a treaty conference, the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT), in December 2012, which will revise a 1988 treaty, the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITR). The ITR treaty established how operators compensate each other for terminating international voice calls through the payment of settlements. The report, 'Internet global growth: lessons for the future', authored by Michael Kende, co-head of Regulation at Analysys Mason, demonstrates that adapting the ITRs to the Internet is not only unnecessary, but could harm the growth of the Internet in developing countries.
