​​​​​​The increase in telecommunication/ICT infrastructure development and sharing has allowed a more efficient roll-out of next-generation networks (NGN) worldwide. ​ITU is working on technical, economic, policy and regulatory research and collecting data on the evolution of infrastructure development and sharing world-wide. ​​​

Infrastructure development based on sharing offers numerous business opportunities with strategies designed to make the use of passive and active infrastructure more efficient and also contributes to lower prices for end-users.  ​
