ITU News is issued six times a year in six languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish) and provides an up-to-date view of the International Telecommunication Union's activities and global events, as well as the ICT environment that they help to shape. It reports on key government and industry decisions taken to coordinate the development and operation of global telecommunication networks and services.
ITU News offers comprehensive coverage of the foundations needed for the information society of the 21st century. In radiocommunications, the focus is on ITU's management of the radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits. It also highlights the high-quality standards developed by ITU to foster global interconnection, and in the sphere of development, turns the spotlight on projects that aim to close the "digital divide" between those with access to ICT and those without.
With reports from ITU events, such as Telecom exhibitions and forums, the magazine brings readers the views of important figures from the public and private sectors. Using ITU's research and analysis, it highlights emerging trends in the telecommunication environment.
