Foreword

The 2003 ITU World Telecommunication Development Report: Access Indicators for the Information Society has been specially prepared for the first phase of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) (Geneva, 10-12 December 2003). This year’s report examines the specific issue of measuring access to information and communication technologies (ICTs). ITU has long been involved in analysing access to ICTs. As early as 1984, the Maitland Commission Report, known as “The Missing Link”, first drew international attention to the large inequities in telephone access across the world. ITU’s 1998 World Telecommunication Development Report—on “universal access”— updated the Missing Link findings in light of technological and regulatory changes affecting the telecommunication industry.
