Internet Access: Broadband
The State of Broadband 2021: People-Centred
Approaches for Universal Broadband Connectivity
Despite progress on Internet access
and adoption, more effort is needed to ensure success and concrete
movement towards the global 2030 targets. Additional investment and
inclusive, open partnerships can advance progress towards universal
broadband – which in turn will accelerate economic growth, help
alleviate poverty, impact social development, and address climate
change. Policy and regulatory actions will not only encourage and
incentivize greater investment and Internet adoption, but will also
address inequitable access sparked by market failures.
Putting individuals at the centre as we build digital infrastructure
and progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
requires concerted effort. This will involve moving beyond mindsets
focused on technological fixes, and focusing on those user issues
that limit adoption – socio-demographics, skills, affordability,
relevance, content and trust. Efforts are required to direct funding
to address the challenges of the unconnected. As new waves of
innovation in digital infrastructure go mainstream concerted efforts
must be made to ensure these developments particularly benefit low-
and middle-income countries as well as developed countries. This
report details the current state of play, lessons learned from the
pandemic, progress on meeting the Broadband Commission’s 2025
targets & the SDGs, and policy recommendations for a people-centred
approach to achieving universal connectivity by 2030.
