Regulatory Information

The information and communication technology (ICT) sector is in the midst of remarkable transformation fuelled by a combination of technological, market, policy and regulatory developments.

The market and technological developments are exerting pressure on the current regulatory framework. How will regulation change?

The regulatory data is drawn from an annual regulatory survey, which dates back to 1994. Each year the survey is adapted in order to reflect changes in the sector.
