Making a video call while walking on the shores of Lake Geneva

Mobile broadband users exceed one billion in 2012 driven by a growing demand for smartphones, new applications and social networking services.

ITU is the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technology issues, and the global focal point for governments and the private sector in developing networks and services.
