8th Meeting : New York City, 21 September 2013
As we mark the start of the countdown to 2015 - the due date for
delivery of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) - the Broadband
Commission is ideally positioned to offer key insights to the UN on how
to roll out broadband for development to achieve the MDGs, based on the
experience and insights of our Commissioners. The Commission can help
ensure that the power of broadband networks and services can be fully
harnessed in the frameworks of the post-2015 development agenda.
