To fully participate in todayĺs networked
society and be part of tomorrowĺs hyper-connected digital world, policy makers
and regulators are faced with the challenge of meeting their national broadband
goals and adopt appropriate means to further safe digital opportunities and
inclusion of all. Implementing their broadband strategies requires them to
cooperate with the industry, understand the changes taking place in the market,
and adopt innovative regulatory measures and tools taking into consideration the
transnational aspects of the digital networked society.
further share their views on net neutrality, spectrum policies, roaming, cloud
computing, online safety with a focus on data protection and privacy,
international and regional IP interconnection, public-private-partnerships to
foster investment and deployment of broadband NGN networks and more. GSR will
open with a high level interactive segment, focusing on transnational regulatory
issues in a converged digital era, understanding the changing business dynamics
