Our purpose

‘Connecting everyone and everything to a better future’ is the common purpose shared by every mobile operator across the planet. One common purpose illustrates our industry’s commitment to remain the leading contributor in creating a world where we are all connected and where the way we work and live together continues to transform and improve.

Our purpose and the UN SDGs

Our purpose is the driving force behind our industry’s commitment to playing the leading role in connecting the world and achieving the SDGs, which aim to end poverty, halt climate change and fight injustice and inequality. Access to the mobile internet is a defining moment in a community’s economic, social and political development.
