The report, “Internet Global Growth: Lessons for the Future,” reveals that reliance on commercially negotiated interconnection arrangements has been the foundation for the growth of Internet traffic through developed countries in Asia and Europe, and more recently, developing countries. The report provides evidence showing the current Internet model effectively promotes Internet growth globally, and warns that restrictive regulations could impede growth. Dr. Kende credits private investment and innovation for the progress, but cautions that regulatory overhaul could halt this growth.
