​Today ICTs and broadband are changing the public services delivery. Through health care, education and government public services delivery. Whether to deliver care, education, deploy personnel or conduct research at every level and in every country the business of those public services relies on information and communication and, increasingly, on the technologies like broadband that enable it. Technological advances, economic investment, and social and cultural changes are also contributing to the expectation that the education sector must inevitably integrate technology into their agenda.​

The Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development welcomes the re-launch of the Working Group on Education. 

As Co-Vice-chair of the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development, UNESCO is committed to advancing the objectives of the Commission within its field of competence. At its September 2016 meeting, many Commissioners underlined the importance and opportunities of broadband and ICT uses for education. In response to these intensive discussions, UNESCO's Director-General offered to re-launch the Education Working Group and was joined by Intel’s Vice President of Government and Education as co-chair of the group.
