By the early 00s, the global telecommunications focus had moved from the plain old telephone network to the functions it has in a knowledge based society, key words here are the Internet, broadband access and mobile communications. The focus in the 1990s was on privatisation, rationalisation, and shareholders value. A new balance is needed that also takes the national interest into account. This applies to countries across the world, and regulators are the key facilitators in this new paradigm. This reports draws on international research and observations from the ITU, OECD, Siemens and other global organisations and companies.
