icc to itu: fix the analog divide before venturing digital

The International Telecoms Union (ITU) has been told by the International
Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to focus more of its efforts on stimulating the
growth of fixed line voice telephony in developing countries. The Swiss-led
ICC, which represents global business interests, says that the ITU devotes
too much of its focus to the technical management of the internet rather
than the core issue of teledensity. The ITU has recently announced plans to
wrest control of internet administration from the US-based Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

thanks. nice word ... teledensity.

  one does wonder if it remains cost effective to
  drag bits of wire around.
