World Information Society day will take place on May 17, 2021. Internationally it is known as “World Telecommunication Day” and was proclaimed in 1967 by the Union Internationale de Télécommunication. It is recognized by the United Nations (UN) as an international day of remembrance. Telecommunications refers to any exchange of information over a certain distance.
Telecommunications is the German word belonging to the foreign word “telecommunications”. Since the mid-1990s, however, it has been used practically only in military facilities and in disaster control and has almost completely disappeared in everyday language, as the companies operating in this area in particular use the word “telecommunications”. In a narrower sense, telecommunication is understood today as the exchange of data using electrical engineering, electronics, radio engineering and other modern transmission technology.
Telecommunication facilities are an essential part of the infrastructure today. For this reason, to avoid spatial disparities, their provision is a joint task of spatial development and thus in practice a state task.
