Hello Col Perhar,

ITU has made several attempts to take charge of the Internet. It tried interfering in the working of the IETF, has continuously tried to appropriate the Internet standards making process, is known to have made attempts to capture ICANN.


ITU has an interest in names and numbers because it wishes to work towards making all of the Internet as a subset of the Telecom infrastructure, which would enable the ITU member telecoms to throw away the "no-body-owns-or- controls-the-Internet" model and bring in business models that would ring in enormous revenues for its member telecoms. 

If it is of any interest to the list to know more about the ITU background, please see the message that I posted at the IGC list (and the subsequent exchanges in response). 


Perhaps the ITU feels that it should own the Internet and run it on a pay-per-second billing model.

I don't find any reason or need by ITU for any standardization, country wise

Seems to be a muscle flexing or empire building ex!!
