- Is there anything non-controversial in the revised treaty that could be agreed upon by all countries (e.g. universal number for emergency services, greater transparency in mobile roaming prices, improvement in the energy efficiency of ICT networks)
- Are we, as The Economist says, at the beginning of a “digital cold war” between signatories and non-signatories? What would the implications of a “cold war” scenario be for the future of the Internet?
- Or, alternatively, are we dealing with a “too much about nothing” scenario, where after ratifications and delays, little would have changed?
- How has the conference affected the future of the ITU?
- Will a split regulatory scenario of the Internet affect its regional implementation?
