The annual Trends in Telecommunication Reform publications are a key part of the dialogue with the world’s information and communications technology (ICT) policy-makers and regulators to ensure that all citizens can safely benefit from innovations taking place in the market leading to new applications, services and businesses opportunities brought by a converged digital environment. The 13th edition will examine transnational aspects of regulation in a networked society and provide a sound understanding of the digital ecosystem in place and the role of regulation. To fully participate in today’s networked society and be part of tomorrow’s hyper-connected digital world, policy-makers and regulators need to adopt and implement appropriate policies and means to further safe digital opportunities and inclusion of all. Implementing their digital strategies requires them to cooperate on national, regional and global scales to understand the changes taking place in the market, and adopt innovative regulatory measures and tools.




I am pleased to present the 13th annual edition of Trends in Telecommunication Reform. The Trends series of reports seeks to examine the latest developments in technology and regulation that are shaping the ICT sector worldwide and identify best practices that can help guide governments and the private sector in creating a safe and smart digital society. It is my belief that by identifying the critical issues raised by advances in technology, and recognizing the successful approaches that governments, operators and service providers have developed to address them, we can contribute to meeting the challenge of extending access to cutting-edge ICT networks and bringing the experience and benefits of the digital ecosystem to all the world’s people.
