International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is a United Nations agency specialized for information and communications technology. It was formed in 1865 during the International Telegraph Convention, granting its status as one of the oldest intergovernmental organizations in the world. It became affiliated with the United Nations as a specialized agency in 1947.
Today, the agency is responsible for regulating global radio spectrum and satellite orbits allocation, develop tech standards for networks and technologies to properly interact, and overall improve access to information and communications technologies.
ITU serves the global community by representing everyone’s right to communicate no matter location and financial situation.
