ITU (International Telecommunication Union) is the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies – ICTs. The organisation allocates global radio spectrum and satellite orbits, develops the technical standards that ensure networks and technologies seamlessly interconnect, and strives to improve access to ICTs to underserved communities worldwide.
