STATE OF BROADBAND:
A DECADE OF ADVOCAC​Y FOR UNIVERSAL CONNECTIVITY

The Annual Meeting brings together Broadband Commissioners - leaders across ICTs sectors to discuss the newly released State of Broadband Report 2020 (#SoBB2020): "Tackling Digital Inequalities: A Decade For Action" and to devise a plan to deliver on the 2030 Agenda. In this milestone report Commissioners confront the realities of the year as the world faces a pandemic disrupting Global and local economies, healthcare and education systems. Working Group Chairs will present publications bringing to the forefront the crucial role that broadband plays in connecting the world and keeping societies safe, strong and healthy. Together we will continue our work towards universal connectivity, making sure to leave no one behind.

10th ANNIVERSARY:  A TIME FOR CELEBRATION AND ACTION

As we enter the Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs, the Broadband Commission celebrates its 10th Anniversary by asking its Commissioners and the greater broadband community to reflect on what has been achieved so far, and building on this, what concrete steps are needed to realize the 2030 Global Goals. At this Fall Annual Meeting, the Commission gathers virtually  to re-energize and engage Broadband leaders to take action and establish models across sectors on how to “Build Back Better with Broadband."
