Hide / Show Abstract

There is no single set of telecommunication regulatory issues presented by IP Telephony. The technology is being applied in many different ways in many different markets around the world. Each market is subject to a unique regulatory framework, guided by unique policy goals and subject to unique challenges. IP Telephony may represent an urgent issue in one market, while being considered as a complete “non-issue” in another. The goal of this chapter is to describe some of the issues being faced in many markets around the world, and to analyse the policy approaches to them.
