This book examines telecommunications development in Asia as a result of previous shifts in policy, and examines them against accounts of international “best practice” and global trends, and within the economic, industrial, and political environments in which these developments are taking place. It should be noted that while “best practice” is an ideal to be aimed at, for example, liberal licensing policies, transparent regulation and interconnection of competing networks at cost-oriented charges, in reality policy makers and regulators are confronted with numerous constraints.

Keywords: telecommunications; Asia; best practice; global trends; licensing policies
