How can we close the digital divide and open paths to prosperity?

  1. Government can foster an investment-friendly environment to encourage the rollout of high-performing networks.
  2. Industry and government can partner to provide digital literacy skills for children and the workforce of the future.

With the benefits of modern connectivity and digitalization clear, these are two concrete ways to help get networks up and running and give people the skills to benefit from digital technologies.

At the 2022 Annual Fall Meeting of the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development Commissioner Erik Ekudden will dive deeper in discussions focusing on how government and industry partnerships can make this possible.
