This is the eighth edition of ITU's World Telecommunication/ICT Development Report. The 2006 edition's theme is "Measuring ICT for social and economic development" and was specifically prepared for the World Telecommunication Development Conference in March 2006. Besides looking at the progress made in measuring the impact of ICT on social and economic development, the report provides the latest telecommunication/ICT indicators for some 180 economies wordwide.




It is a pleasure to present this eighth edition of the World Telecommunication/ICT Development Report (WTDR). The report reflects the important role that ITU’s Development Sector (ITU-D) has in collecting, harmonizing, and exchanging information in the area of ICT/telecommunication statistics.
