Regional Interconnection, Costs and Other Issues

The problem of Internet access costs for operators and Internet service providers in developing countries and the difficulties they face in order to connect to other countries within the same region or sub-region have been present at every debate that has taken place at international fora on Internet and the Information Society in recent years. This issue has generally been identified as “Regional Interconnection”.

Thus, for example, the issue is discussed in paragraphs 23, 27, and 50 of the Tunisia Agenda, one of the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society, as well as in many other documents such as, among others, the 2005 Rio de Janeiro Commitment, agreed at the Regional Ministerial Conference of Latin America and the Caribbean, and the eLAC-2007 Plan of Action, a regional plan of action for the development of the information society.
