Infrastructure Development and Connectivity Portal

​​​ITU is working on technical, economic, policy and regulatory research and​ collecting data on the evolution of connectivity and infrastructure development world-wide. ​​
his portal gathers the results from this work, information on activities and initiatives done by ITU Members. It also highlights key findings from ITU publications, studies, research, ITU Study Groups, and data and analysis from the ITU ICT Eye database.
