Under the overarching theme “Getting ready for the digital economy“, the 15th edition of Trends in Telecommunication Reform discusses changing ICT consumer behaviour, consumer empowerment and protection in the digital age. It further explores the opportunities and challenges of big data and what it means from a regulatory perspective; why competition matters. It also attempts to answer whether it is time to rethink spectrum licensing, how to monitor the implementation of broadband plans and what are the new business models driven by digital communications and services.
As in previous editions, the publication will feature an in-depth analysis of current market and regulatory trends based on ITU data from one of the world’s most comprehensive data platforms, the ICT Eye. More information is available from the ITU bookshop at: http://www.itu.int/pub/D-PREF-TTR/en
