Regulatory Environment

Setting the right rules to advance the digital economy

Competitive markets are highly efficient engines for economic growth and innovation. The mobile sector, however, is among the most intensely regulated industry sectors. Because of the nature of mobile technologies, some rules and obligations are needed to serve consumers’ interests, but market interventions are not, in general, keeping pace with the swift advance of mobile technologies and the internet. Flexible, light-touch regulatory approaches create an environment for continued mobile sector investment and innovation, bringing the benefits of mobile connectivity to people everywhere.
