ITU and Info-Communications

The Internet and Mobile Info-Communications Revolution

The world is changing and ITU is changing with it. First there was telecommunications. Then came information technology. They've merged to create info-communications. That means radical new ways of designing and using telecommunications networks. It also means new technical, policy and regulatory challenges. Discover here some of our projects to build the global information economy and society. And how we're making info-communications a reality in the 21st century.
