Connected Society Programme
Unlocking human potential through the power of mobile internet
Our mission is to support the mobile industry to increase the adoption of the internet for the underserved by tackling key barriers: network coverage, affordability, digital skills and locally relevant content.
The internet is the most important enabler of social development and economic growth of our time. Already 3.2 billion people are online – 2.4 billion of them through mobile – directly benefiting from and contributing to the digital economy. 4 billion people remain offline, unable to participate and unaware of the opportunities.
