7th edition, 2008   Publication Notice with Order Form

Prepared for ITU TELECOM ASIA 2008 (Bangkok, Thailand, 2-5 September 2008), this report is an indispensable reference book of telecommunication/ICT facts and figures for the region. The publication provides an overview of recent market trends, including in the area of fixed, mobile and Internet services. It focuses on broadband developments in the region, including in terms of policies, technologies, competition, access, pricing and applications. The report highlights government policies in the area of broadband that may serve as best practice examples but also looks at and analyzes the region's broadband digital divide and makes a number of conclusions and recommendations. The report includes some 20 regional tables covering key telecommunication/ICT indicators, over 40 individual country pages with a five year profile from 2002 to 2007, and a directory with names of telecommunication ministries, regulators and operators in the region.
