Building the Digital Economy

Mobile service now extends to 95% of the global population, and mobile internet access is spreading fast. Recognising the value of mobile to society, many governments have set bold policies to cultivate the digital economy while ensuring the benefits of connectivity reach remote and underserved communities. As the mobile industry continues to roll out 4G networks and looks towards 5G, the need for pro-investment policies and modernised regulatory regimes has never been greater.

Digital transformation provides a unique opportunity to reset policy and regulatory frameworks to enable investment and expand connectivity. Working with regulators and governments across the world, the GSMA has developed a set of global principles and policy recommendations to build a thriving digital economy that benefits both consumers and economies.
