  1. 1. Development and Governance of the Internet Where we came from and where we are going to? Challenges and Opportunities BHN APT Seminar Jan 28, 2013 Izumi Aizu
  2. 2. 2 Suggestions  Think hard!  Make your own memo  Prepare comments & questions  Don’t hesitate to ask questions or make comments any time
  3. 3. 3May 22 2010 Telecom or Internet? Telecom Network Internet Services Internet Telephony Fixed Line Services Mobile/wireless Services YouTube Facebook Twitter Amazon Blog Skype www Email
  4. 4. Four Questions 1. Why did you get involved with Telecom/Communication? 2. What is your professional goal? 3. Which one do you think is more important, Telecom network or Internet services? And why do you think so? 4. Have you heard the term "Internet Governance"? If so, what is your understanding of Internet Governance? What is the problem? 4
  5. 5. Wahyu Winarto, Indonesia Why did you get involved with Telecom/Communication? Because I got scholarship from PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (incumbent telecommunication company in my country) in 1992, then I started to join PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia since 1997. What is your professional goal? I want to be a Professional HR Practitioner, specially in Telecommunication industries. Which one do you think is more important, Telecom network or Internet services? And why do you think so? In my opinion, at this time, internet services become very much important because of emergent of digital economy, but digital economy can only has significant contribution to GDP if there are sufficient telecom network. Have you heard the term "Internet Governance"? If so, what is your understanding of Internet Governance? What is the problem? No, I haven't, but in my perception, it's related to how to govern the internet. In Indonesia we have such law. It's Law of Electronic Information & Transaction. 5
  6. 6. O.Babakulov, Uzbekstan Why did you get Telecommunications / Communications? Because, I have grown fond of technology. And then, the modern trends in the global market, there is innovation in the field of information and communication technologies, and their effective use in more efficient management and technological processes in enterprises, the creation of new and expansion of existing markets for goods and services in different areas. Telecommunication services are increasingly intertwined with the concept of the Internet and its availability promotes more intensive exchange of information and knowledge between people, leading to a society based on knowledge. Consequently, the development of telecommunications services, including the Internet contributes to higher living standards. Which one do you think is more important, Telecom network or Internet services?Why do you think so? Because the telecommunications and Internet related to many. Internet - without telecommunication networks represent is difficult. I think so.
  7. 7. Aminur Rahman, Bangladesh Why did you get involved with Telecom/Communication? Now is the age of Telecom/ICT. ICT plays the key role in today’s economy. No matter what industry people are in, it’s unlikely that it is untouched by the advent of Telecom/ICT – which is mostly the preserve of techies. Telecom/ ICT jobs can be very rewarding. After all, it’s the hot growth sector of the 21st century. Things are changing constantly. Technology is ever improving. Business models are rushing to keep pace with technological developments, which sometimes can be highly disruptive. If this is the kind of challenge that one enjoys and the kind of environment that he wants to thrive in, then he should consider a career in Telecom/ICT. Moreover, an EEE graduate dreams to innovate and serve in his own field. Considering the described matters I got involved with Telecom/ICT. What is your professional goal? My professional goal is to be a resource personal in Telecom/ICT sector. Especially, I want to be a professional in the management/administration of ICT in a broader sense.
  8. 8. Aminur Rahman, Bangladesh, 2 3. Which one do you think is more important, Telecom network or Internet services? And why do you think so? Now a days people talk which is more important, telecom network or internet services? I say both of them are important. As telecom network is obviously necessary for enter into the server to retrieve information, internet services are necessary to make peoples’ life easier using those data communication. Internet services have no meaning if there is no network to use those services. On the contrary, telecom network has no uses if there is no internet services. Now people do not want to talk only, they like to use online services using telecom network and internet services. In some extent, services are more desirable to people rather they bother what network they are using.
  9. 9. 4. Have you heard the term "Internet Governance”?If so, what is your understanding of Internet Governance? What is the problem? Yes, I have heard the term “Internet Governance”. Internet governance is the development and application of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programs that shape the evolution and use of the Internet. This article describes how the Internet was and is currently governed, some of the controversies that occurred along the way, and the ongoing debates about how the Internet should or should not be governed in the future. Internet governance should not be confused with E-Governance which refers to technology driven governance. The definition of Internet governance has been contested by differing groups across political and ideological lines. One of the main debates concerns the authority and participation of certain actors, such as national governments, corporate entities and civil society, to play a role in the Internet's governance. A Working group established after a United Nations-initiated World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) proposed the following definition of Internet governance as part of its June 2005 report: Internet governance is the development and application by Governments, the private sector and civil society, in their respective roles, of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programmes that shape the evolution and use of the Internet. Aminur Rahman, Bangladesh, 3
  10. 10. Gayan Munasinghe, Sri Lanka 1. Electronic and telecommunication was my favorite subject/topic from my school life to date. Therefore I selected Telecommunication sector as my carrier 2. Updating my knowledge on new telecommunication based technologies to serve the society as possible as I can 3. Telecommunication is the most important. It is the infrastructure to deliver the internet services. There is no internet services at all when there is not a Network. 4. I have heard little bit about internet governance. It says about the requirement of Common way of communication among all the users in the global intranet. 10
  11. 11. Vongketh Phitsarath, Laos Why did you get involved with Telecom/Communication? I can face many new difference things, new opportunities & challenges, learning of new knowledge of technologies and can communicate with new peoples. What is your professional goal? To make a positive impact in the company though my expertise and ethics. I also look forward to develop myself in leadership areas and can leading my team to new innovations and growth Which one do you think is more important, Telecom network or Internet services? And why do you think so? Internet service is more importance. It’s the greatest development in the domain of communication industry while it functions as a valuable resource of information. To communicate with unlimited people in the same time. A wide variety of entertainment including video games, music, movies, chat room, news and others can be accessed through the Internet. Business transactions that entails transmission of data from one corner of the world to another such as e- commerce. To community by discussions, express their views and gather valuable knowledge. Beside that it’s more comfortable such as A variety of services are offered via Internet, for example job searching, online banking, buying movie tickets, hotel reservations and consultation services etc. When you avail these services offline, they become more expensive. Have you heard the term “Internet Governance”? No, never
  12. 12. Anna Marie Fernando, The Philippines Why did you get involved with Telecom/Communication? I got involved in Telecom/Communication when: a) I worked for the Philippine National Economic Development Agency (the economic think tank government branch of our country) and b) I worked for the Philippine Long Distance Telecommunications Company (the dominant telco player in the Philippines to date). I wanted to get involved in Telecom/Communication because I think it's a economic infrastructure for nation building. As an enabler of a lot of possibilities, I think Telecom/Comms will also provide good learning opportunities for me. What is your professional goal? To have a successful career and find meaning in the work I do.
  13. 13. Anna Marie Fernando, The Phillipines, 2 Which one do you think is more important, Telecom network or Internet services? And why do you think so? Both since I think lines between Telecom and Internet is blurring as the ICT sector evolves. Have you heard the term "Internet Governance"? If so, what is your understanding of Internet Governance? What is the problem? Yes, in my reading for the BHN CyberLaw Subject. In my understanding, Internet Governance is about establishing standards and regulations that would promote usage while serving the interest of the consumers. However, I think there's a huge debate on this one because it's difficult to strike a balance between the 2 (e.g. internet regulation on internet libel vs. right to freedom of speech, etc.)
  14. 14. 14 In the beginning…  Few people believed that ordinary people will use computers  Very few people believed that people will use computers to communicate  In the Telecom world…Internet was regarded as “dirty”, “not secure”, not suited to serious business  Governments, Telco, ITU, Business, Academia - all main stream people were against the Internet

  16. 16. ITR at WCIT/ITU • ITR: International Telecommunications Regulation an International Treaty, revised since 1988 version • WCIT: World Conference on International Telecommunication, held in Dubai, Dec 2012
  17. 17. New global telecoms treaty agreed in Dubai World Conference on International Telecommunications forges solid new framework for tomorrow’s hyper-connected world News Release by ITU  Dubai, 14 December, 2012 – After two intensive weeks of negotiations, delegates from around the world have agreed a new global treaty that will help pave the way to a hyper- connected world that will bring the power of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to people everywhere.  Over 2,000 delegates were registered for the conference, which was held by ITU at the request of its 193 Member States to renegotiate the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs), the binding global treaty facilitating global interconnection and interoperability of information and communication services, their efficient operation and their widespread public availability.  The treaty sets out general principles for ensuring the free flow of information around the world. New provisions in the text place special emphasis on future efforts to assist developing countries, on promoting accessibility to persons with disabilities, and on asserting all people’s right to freedom of expression over ICT networks.  Other pioneering new provisions include a Resolution to create a single, globally harmonized number for access to emergency services, new text mandating greater transparency in the prices set for mobile roaming, and new provisions to improve the energy efficiency of ICT networks and help combat e-waste.  Tough issues that provoked considerable debate at the conference included network security, unsolicited bulk content such as spam email, the definition of entities providing services under the terms of the treaty, the principle of non-discriminatory access of countries to each other’s networks, and whether or not to include language on freedom of expression in the Preamble text of the treaty.
  18. 18. A true success? Chairman Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim (UAE) succeeded in breaking a seeming deadlock on Thursday, after discussions late into the night on Wednesday 12th failed to make headway on the few remaining sticking points. Coming back to the meeting on Thursday evening after a tense start to negotiations earlier that day, Mr Al Ghanim presented a new ‘consolidated package’ containing all agreed compromise texts that had been negotiated painstakingly section by section over the past two weeks at Committee, Ad Hoc Group and informal group level. ITU Secretary-General Dr Hamadoun Touré called the signing of the treaty this afternoon a “momentous occasion and historic opportunity to bring connectivity to the two thirds of the world’s people who are still offline.” Speaking to assembled delegates at the closing ceremony this afternoon, he said: “As you look back today on your very intensive, very long days of work, you can hold our heads up high – proud that you have triumphed over adversity and delivered the goods.” He added that he regretted that some countries have so far declined to ratify the treaty, and hoped ITU will continue to work constructively with those nations going forward.
  19. 19. Or a true failure? WCIT collapses: US, UK, allies refuse to sign treaty after Africa wins floor vote  The International Telecommunications Union and World Conference on International Telecommunications was in crisis as we went to press at 6am AEST, with the United States, the United Kingdom and several of their allies declaring that they would refuse to sign the proposed International Telecommunications Regulations.  The crisis erupted last night when the African bloc attempted to have its preferred form of words over the rights of member states to access telecommunications networks accepted in the treaty. The US and other allies saw the language as an unambiguous attempt to open the ITRs up to governance and content regulation.  Iran took the unprecedented step of calling for a vote, against the oft-stated intentions of the ITU to forge a consensus on the ITRs. The vote was won 77-33 by the African bloc with 6 abstentions.  The US then immediately declared it would not sign the treaty. Ambassador Terry Kramer said “It’s with a heavy heart and a sense of missed opportunities that the US must communicate that it’s not able to sign the agreement in the current form.”  “The Internet has given the world unimaginable economic and social benefit during these past 24 years. All without UN Regulation.”  “We candidly cannot support an ITU Treaty that is inconsistent with the multi-stakeholder model of Internet governance. As the ITU has stated, this conference was never meant to focus on Internet issues. However, today, we’re in a situation where we still have text and resolutions that cover issues on spam and also provisions on Internet governance … the United States continues to believe that Internet policy must be multi-stakeholder driven. Internet policy should not be determined by Member States, but by citizen, communities, and broader society. And such consultation from the private sector and civil society is paramount. This has not happened here.”

  24. 24. Debate on Internet Governance 24
  25. 25. It all began with the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)  Summit: United Nation’s high-level event with Head of States to discuss matters of mutual concerns, mostly global emerging issues  WSIS – proposed by ITU, adopted by GA  1st phase 2003 - in Geneva, 2nd 2005 in Tunis  Objective:  Close the digital divide in developing countries  Take advantage of digital economy for further development  Address new issues of information society
  26. 26. “Internet Governance” became the hottest issue  Emerged during prep process in 2002, the hottest of all issues  Developing countries wanted to change the international system around ICANN  “Internet is a global public resource that requires governments to manage”, calling for formal intervention of governments in the management of the Domain Name System, under the UN System by international intergovernmental body “Replace ICANN with ITU”, “UN to take over ICANN”  USA and many Western countries argued for “No regulation” by governments, let private sector to manage Internet resources  Long and winding debate continued among governments as well as business and civil society participants in the preparatory process
