World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD), celebrated each year of the 17 May, marks the anniversary of  the signature of the first International Telegraph Convention in 1865 which led to the creation of the International Telecommunication  Union. WTISD is to help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and
other information and communication technologies (ICT) can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide.

This year, World Telecommunication and Information  Society Day highlight the theme “Better life in rural communities with ICTs”, which was adopted by ITU Council in 2009 and follows up theme for 2010: “Better city, better life with ICTs”.
