Regulators set to meet in Colombia
ITU reports that telecoms regulators will meet in Colombia next week for the annual Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR).
ITU has launched an online and mobile networking platform for participants, allowing for global networking before and after the event.
The Symposium will be preceded by the Global Industry Leaders’ Forum (GILF) on 20 September that will provide a top level international venue for industry leaders and investors to share their views with Regulators and policy makers.
The events are organized by ITU in collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies and the Communications Regulatory Commission of Colombia.
In the GSR best practice guidelines, ITU says the impact of broadband is increasingly being acknowledged, and that sound broadband strategies and plans are now needed to ensure that all citizens can benefit from the new applications, services and businesses opportunities brought by a broadband world.
Participants in the 11th GSR and the 4th GILF will examine smart regulatory measures regulators can take to achieve broadband for all, foster innovation, and address the complexities and challenges of the broadband ecosystem.
