An Introduction to the Current Situation in Telecommunications

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the present situation in telecommunications. It reveals that the developments in telecommunication have been motivated by liberalization and technology, thus making it both very dynamic and prone to disputes. Expansions in telecommunications and the arrival of new services can be attributed to the union of entertainment, information, and communication. It then stresses the need for a stable policy and regulatory framework. The chapter also includes some cases that were presented to the telecom dispute settlement body in India. The role of other dispute settlement units and regulators become the primary focus. This is used to determine if the present legal framework is suitable for the telecom sector, and if the current dispute resolution mechanisms are keeping up with the dynamic industry structure.

Keywords: policy framework; developments; liberalization; technology; new services; telecom dispute settlement body; dispute settlement units; regulators
