>> Downloading Tips
IP Telephony Case Studies. The following country case studies look specifically at IP Telephony. Four of these were commissioned for the Workshop on IP Telephony, held in June 2000, three of which have been updated (China, Colombia, Peru) and two more (Canada, Republic of Korea) have been commissioned specially for the WTPF 01. Internet Diffusion Case Studies.  In 2000, the ITU carried out a series of case studies on the diffusion of the Internet in a number of countries at different stages of development. Although these studies focused on the spread and development of the Internet, they also looked at the regulatory and market situation regarding IP Telephony. For more detail on the Internet Diffusion project, please visit the Internet case studies website.
