No industry has expanded faster than telecommunications, gained so
many new users, added so much value, spread so rapidly to the
underdeveloped areas of developing countries, done so much to close
the digital divide and provide access to e-learning, e-health, and
e-commerce across the countries of the Asia Pacific.
Telecommunications Development in Asia provides a
completely new and comprehensive analysis of the policies adopted
throughout the region that have led to the explosive growth of this
sector. It is a sequel to the 1995 landmark publication, John Ure
(editor) Telecommunications in Asia: Policy, Planning and
Development, and like the earlier volume will become a popular
and indispensable guide for professionals, policy-makers and
regulators working in telecommunications-related sectors.
Part One of this new book is thematic. It reviews global best
practices across a range of key issues facing the industry, from
regulation, competition policy and the provision of universal
service, to interconnection between competing networks, the
management of radio spectrum for the all-important wireless
communications sector, and an assessment of innovation in the
telecommunications equipment market.
Part Two examines markets across the Asia Pacific region, exploring
the themes of Part One through in-depth country studies. Policy and
regulations, industry trends and markets are uniquely placed in
their historical, economic and political context. No other
publication offers such comprehensive insights and understanding of
the dynamic of these markets. And like the 1995 book, this one
looks likely to stand the test of time.
