Telecommunications Regulatory Issues for Electronic Commerce

image of Telecommunications Regulatory Issues for Electronic Commerce

The eighth Colloquium examined the role that the telecommunications policy maker and regulator could most usefully play in the development of electronic commerce. While there is an already enormous and growing literature on e-commerce, relatively little attention has been paid to the link between e-commerce and telecommunication regulation. In addition, relatively little attention has been paid to providing guidance to telecom officials in developing countries on this link. The analysis in this Briefing Report is intended to help fill this gap.
