The chorus of concerned voices being raised ahead of the International Telecommunication Union's forthcoming World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) is growing in both the number and the status of participants. The ITU's latest attempt to address those concerns is not re-assuring.
Greenpeace and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) have joined forces to lobby against what they say is a move by "certain countries" to use the ITU to take control of the Internet.

For years cellular mobile and WiMAX network operators along with their network and device suppliers have been touting their wireless broadband offerings as 4G, but the International Telecommunication Union has only just finalised the 4G standards.
A handful of the world's major standards development organisations - ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, TIA, TTA and TTC - have announced plans to form a global initiative for m2m standardisation.
The International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) Telecommunication Standardisation Advisory Group (TSAG) has set up a joint coordination activity on cloud computing to create a cloud computing ecosystem where interoperability facilitates secure information exchange across platforms.
Communications Alliance is planning to develop guidelines for the end-to-end performance of Internet Protocol networks, such as the NBN.
