A challenging 2023 seems inevitable, with multiple policy and regulatory issues expected to significantly impact telecoms operators, digital service providers and media companies.

Cullen International research identified global issues affecting digital policy, regulation and law worth monitoring in 2023.

According to the report, in the next year:

  • Telecoms operators and over-the-top (OTT) service providers will continue to battle over a “fair share” for network usage. Further developments in Europe and Korea will be closely watched by and could influence other countries.
  • Industrial applications of 5G networks are expected to gain traction by using 5G standalone architecture and augmented reality (AR) technology.
  • Satellite constellations will gain momentum, with partnerships to provide direct satellite-to-device services representing a unique market opportunity.

  • artificial intelligence (AI);
  • cybersecurity and privacy;
