It looks like the ITU-T is now offering free downloads. I thought this
would be of interest given our continuously ongoing discussions
regarding the Get802 program.

ITU opens up huge online resource
Move will enable free downloads to the public
Geneva, 10 September 2007 - ITU Standards produced by the
Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) are now available
online without charge. The announcement follows a highly successful
trial conducted from January-October 2007, during which some two million
ITU-T Recommendations were downloaded throughout the world.
The aim of the trial was to "increase the visibility and easy
availability of the output of ITU-T". Offering standards for free is a
significant step for the standards community as well as the wider
information and communication technologies (ICT) industry. Now, anyone
with Internet access will be able to download any of over 3000 ITU-T
Recommendations. These are used by equipment manufacturers,
telecommunication network operators and service providers throughout the
world to drive the information society. The move further demonstrates
ITU's commitment to bridging the digital divide by extending the results
of its work to the global community.
