UN doesn't want to take over Internet, does want to help telcos profit

    21 June 2012

    Secretary general to the UN agency the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) responded to criticisms about the upcoming World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) by detailing the Union's role and what it hopes to gain from the summit. This includes explaining that WCIT cannot control the "free flow of information" online, and the real issue is that "total revenues for telecommunications operators are potentially at risk."
