Synopsis

Over the last decade or so the telecoms industry has been at loggerheads with the content providers and distributors (OTT companies) regarding the use of the infrastructure by the OTT players. On one side, we have the people arguing for net neutrality (leave the OTT players alone), and on the other we have the telcos wanting to charge certain players for using their network. This report analyses the reasons behind this hostility between the two parties and includes BuddeComm’s opinion on the net neutrality debate.

Another hot topic in relation to the Internet are the issues surrounding the security of the various aspects of the digital economy. Spending on e-security and mobile security will continue to rise sharply and remain a key priority.

This BuddeComm Intelligence report explores the increasingly vital importance of the Internet to our economy and society and the underlying factors which need to be considered when examining the role it plays. The report analyses the historical developments regarding governance of the Internet and draws on developments from the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) and provides a case study on developments in the US in regards to net neutrality. It also explores global cyber -security.

Key developments:

The Internet has become such an important part of society in terms of its contribution to the economy as well as related benefits to businesses and government services. This has resulted in the governance of the Internet and associated net neutrality issues becoming a key global issue with many vested interests involved.
