Hide / Show Abstract

In 2010, the Telecommunication Development Bureau (BDT) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) carried out an assessment of the broadband situation in five least developed countries in South Asia: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives and Nepal (known collectively as ABBMN). The objective was to review the deployment status of broadband, identify areas of improvement and recommend ways of stimulating broadband access. This assessment was carried out as an input to the ITU Ministerial Forum held from 3 to 5 August 2010 in Maldives, which resulted in a Ministerial Declaration setting out, among other things, priority areas for stimulating broadband access in the five ABBMN countries.
