Increased connectivity provides life changing benefits to communities while expanding markets. Internet access provides unconnected populations opportunities for health, education, and economic growth.  Research shows that each additional 10% of internet penetration ads 1% to per capita GDP growth in emerging markets.

Be part of the conversation with regulators, standards setting bodies and other companies paving the way for increased broadband access!
