While TELWG has been operating for some 25 years since 1990, the last few years have seen some of the most rapid technological advances in the telecommunications sector ever. As TELWG worked towards the 2008 goal for universal access to broadband, access to, and use of smartphones, tablets and wireless devices has increased dramatically. Secure computer and mobile device networks connected to stable and reliable telecommunications infrastructure form the essential foundation for the development of the digital economy.
Si has prepared this independent assessment of the operations and structure of the TELWG focusing on the period from 2012-2015. This covers the period since the most recent independent assessment conducted by Perspectiva Integral (delivered on 20 July 2012).
The approach to this assessment has been to consider at every stage whether TELWG is making a difference in the village and in the boardroom.
