Summary This report will conduct case study analysis of several alternative models to privatised telecommunications using the principles outlined by Right2Know as a framing reference. The principles adopted by Right2Know attempt to exemplify a more democratic approach to telecommunications by focusing on community access to decision making around ICT development, public ownership of networks, progressive approaches to the convergence of digital technologies and an overall rights based approach of freedom of expression and right to privacy online.
