  • 3. World Telecommunication/ICT Development
    Report 2010
    MONITORING THE WSIS TARGETS A mid-term review
    The following quotes are from the Foreword of the above report:
    “As this report shows, tremendous progress has been made over the past decade, with close to five billion mobile cellular subscriptions worldwide at the end of 2010, and almost two billion people throughout the world now having access to the Internet.”
    9/15/2010

  • 4. “But there is still a vast amount of work to be done. In particular, we need to bring affordable fast broadband access within reach of the great majority of the world’s people — noting today that three quarters of the world’s inhabitants still have no access to the Internet at all. So what we need is to see a rapid and equitable spread of broadband networks matching the extraordinary growth of mobile cellular networks over the past decade.”
    9/15/2010

  • 5. “The key – as this report acknowledges – will be in recognizing that broadband networks deliver benefits right across society, and can quickly pay for themselves in terms of the savings gained through the more efficient provision of essential services such as healthcare, education, power, water, transportation and e-government.”

  • 17. Development Strategies
    ICT infrastructure
    Can consist of a few or (grow into) many layers
    It must be flexible to accommodate the evolution brought about by fast-paced changes in both the technology and demands of society.
    As end-users become ICT-savvy, they will develop applications on their own; thus, the ICT infrastructure must readily adapt to this new and changing working environment.
    Quickening the pace of ICT development
    More “technopreneurs” to develop/support an ever increasing number of applications in a variety of markets, e.g., health, education, entertainment, e-commerce, etc.

  • 18. “Symbiosis” in the development of ICT applications and of ICT infrastructure
    Providing access to ICT services for the people outside the cities is feasible but is hindered by the high cost of reaching out to them.
    Using wireless broadband can extend the reach of the telecom networks; it can also lower the cost of services to the end-users provided that the applications are quickly deployed as soon as the appropriately configured ICT infrastructures are ready.
    Making heterogeneous infrastructures and/or applications interoperate can lower the costs to the users. For example, certain applications can have some components that run on the mobile phone infrastructure and other components can run on the Internet.
