Significance of World Telecommunications Day
World Telecommunication Day is closely associated with the International Telegraph Association (ITU), which was formed in 1865 to support the emerging communication methods of the time. The ITU was one of the major breakthroughs in communication – the invention of the telephone in 1876, the launch of the first satellite in 1957, and finally the birth of the Internet in the ’60s.
Although the International Telegraph Federation has changed its name to the International Telecommunication Union, it remains one of the most important organizations in the field of communications, thus making headlines on World Telecom Day.
The goal of World Telecom Day is to help raise awareness of the possibilities that technology brings. The focus is on the Internet and other information and communication technologies (ICTs). We use that day to look at the various benefits to the economy and society and to look for ways to maintain the digital divide.
