ICT Data and Statistics (IDS)  
Much of the research for this report was carried out under the `New Initiatives' programme, launched at the ITU in 1999. The research program included the case studies and a workshop on IP Telephony in Geneva on 14-16 June 2000 (see: www.itu.int/iptel).

The ITU is committed to playing a positive role in the development of the Internet and to extending the benefits of new telecommunication technologies, such as the Internet, to all the world's inhabitants. The Minneapolis Plenipotentiary Conference (1998) passed Resolution 101, which calls upon the ITU to "fully embrace the opportunities for telecommunication development that arise from the growth of IP-based services." The ITU Internet Reports are hopefully a significant contribution to that commitment.
