World overview

The dramatic pace of change in the telecommunication sector over recent years has been both exciting and extraordinary. Incumbent telecommunication operators have undergone ownership transformation in many countries, while many formerly insulated domestic markets have been opened to the entry of new operators. To implement and sustain these developments, many governments have carried through two related tasks: the reform of existing telecommunication legislation and the creation of new regulatory agencies.
