2020 is a big year for the Commission, it will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary!
Launched in 2010, in response to the MDG's, for an initial 1-year period, the relevance and the importance of the Broadband Commission has continued over the years. With the shift towards the SDG's, the Commission has adapted its mandate by updating its Targets to advance the SDG's and “Connect the other half" of the World's population.
Throughout the years, Commissioners have tackled several subjects from Health, to education to Child online safety, and has made 65 recommendations through its Flagship report; The State of Broadband.
Recommendations for the most part that have helped governments, and concerned entities implement new policies to improve their broadband infrastructures, affordability and accessibility.
As we are approaching the SDG's deadline, this 10th Anniversary will allow all Commissioners to reflect on what has been achieved so far, and our next steps.
Join us on our social channels for a yearlong celebration of this milestone.
