This is the seventh edition of ITU’s report on telecommunication trends. This edition has as its theme “Access Indicators for the Information Society”, and was specially prepared for the first phase of the World Summit on the Information Society, December 2003. In addition to analysis, the latest telecommunication indicators for some 180 economies worldwide are provided.




It is a pleasure to present this seventh edition of the World Telecommunication Development Report. The report reflects the importance that the ITU’s Development Sector (ITU-D) attaches to the collection, dissemination and exchange of information on telecommunications and ICT. These activities arise out of the ITU’s role to collect statistics covering its sector as the United Nation’s specialized agency for telecommunications and Resolution 8: Collection and dissemination of information of the last World Telecommunication Development Conference (Istanbul, 2002).
