I don't trust info just because one person, company or group would want us to sign a petition or spin the actual information for their own agenda. I always like to hear both sides first. Well I read of the few pages here, some of the info reads like it would be good changes and of things to come for an open world of online and communications.
WCIT-12: Background Briefs and FAQs
Also reading from here http://www.itu.int/en/wcit-12/Docume...und-brief3.pdf
"transformation from circuit-based telecommunication networks to packet-based ones using the Internet
protocol (IP): socalled next-generation networks, or NGN. The “vertical” structure of independent networks is evolving
into a “horizontal” structure based on IP that can deliver many kinds of content through a single
platform. This has profound implications for the market, regulators, and ultimately the expansion of
communications to people everywhere.
I don't know what it all does mean and why G and MR Cerf would be opposed to changes in this structure but if I read right it's because it would open up more the world based on a different technologies and not just only based existing Internet Protocal ( IP )
So, sounds like they are looking for change to give the world a more open platform for communications based on new technologies and communications of today and finding ways for it, specially since the world is changing now to instead of mostly being online through TCP IP to being portable with our cell and not dependent on what exists exclusively now using data
packets and so forth.
Hopefully someone else can read more of it and what it means and expand here.
