NIB: ITU Secretary-General dismisses UN Internet control claims
ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun Toure gave a speech where he warned that the world needed to "move beyond the rhetoric and the fear of the unknown" over revision of the international telecommunication regulations (ITRs). The ITU is reaching out the business around the world and a proper review of the ITRs would mean greater broadband access worldwide, he argued. The speech comes in response to a US-led campaign which claims the United Nations is trying to take control of the Internet.
