International Telecommunication Union, Challenges to the Network 1997: Telecoms and the Internet (Sept. 1997) (not available online).
Overview[edit | edit source]
The subject of the report is the Internet, and more particularly the relationship between the Internet and the telecommunications industry. The development and growth of the Internet is arguably the biggest single challenge that the telecommunications sector faces in the last years of the 20th Century. But it is also its biggest opportunity.
The report provides some 70 pages of analysis, complete with data tables and charts. A Statistical Annex to the report presents 30 pages of time-series data on Internet and telecommunication development, together with analytical charts, tables and maps, and a Directory of the main players in each sector.
