ITU’s new data: “Trends in Telecommunication Reform 2008”

I’ve just flipped through the International Telecommunications Union recently released executive summary of their Telecom Reform 2008 report. The ITU says that there are now 1.5 billion Internet users worldwide, and 4 billion mobile phone users.

Oh, and then there’s also this:

ITU’s Internet and broadband data suggest that more and more countries are going high-speed. By the end of 2007, more than 50 per cent of all Internet subscribers had a high-speed connection. Dial-up is being replaced by broadband across developed and developing countries alike. In developing countries such as Chile, Senegal, and Turkey, broadband subscribers represent over 90 per cent of all Internet subscribers.

  1. Hi! Was looking at internet for information about an idea I’ve heard about and found your name with this text:
    “California Gym for Teens Mixes Exercise with Xbox
    by Cyrus Farivar
    Weekend Edition Sunday, November 19, 2006 · Teens spend a lot of time playing video games, but that doesn’t have to mean they’re not getting enough exercise. A recently opened gym in Mountain View, Cali., is open only to teens and combines traditional gym equipment such as punching bags with electronic gaming activities, like virtual boxing, and body-controlled Xbox games.”
    I would like to hear more about what this gym’s name is and if you know anything more. If they succeed or not, for exampel. If you don’t know so much, I really should apriciate to get the gym’s name.
    Yours grateful,
    Åsa, Sweden
