Is WCIT really that dangerous for the Internet?

Is WCIT really that dangerous for the Internet? | ICT policy | Scoop.it

A new angle (at least to the media) on WCIT. Still some believe these proposed changes in the economic model, for good or for bad economically, would inevitably entail Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), which is the great Satan as many believe, and is sufficient to kill the real soul of what the Internet is about. Would today's Internet still be the same internet with DPI? Many doubt...

ITU releases latest global technology development figures | ITU Newsroom

ITU releases latest global technology development figures | ITU Newsroom | ICT policy | Scoop.it

New figures released today by ITU show that information and communication technology (ICT) uptake continues to grow worldwide, spurred by a steady fall in the price of telephone and broadband Internet services.

 

The new data, released in ITU’s flagship annual report Measuring the Information Society 2012, rank the Republic of Korea as the world’s most advanced ICT economy, followed by Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland.

 

Of the ten top-ranked countries, eight are from Europe. The two remaining countries both come from the Asia-Pacific region, with the Republic of Korea in first place, and Japan ranked 8th. The top five countries have not changed their rank between 2010 and 2011. The only new entrant in the top ten is the UK, which moved up from 14th place last year to 9th place in 2012.

 

ITU’s ICT Development Index (IDI)* ranks 155 countries according to their level of ICT access, use and skills, and compares 2010 and 2011 scores. All countries in the IDI top 30 are high-income countries, underlining the strong link between income and ICT progress.

 

There are large differences between developed and developing countries, with IDI values on average twice as high in the developed world compared with developing countries. The report identifies the group of countries with the lowest IDI levels – so-called ‘Least Connected Countries’ – and highlights the need for policy makers to pay keen attention to this group.
