The Broadband Commission launches a new website in coordination with its Annual Spring Meeting

In March of 2021, the Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development Launched its New Website

Following the input of its esteemed Commissioners and Chairs, the Broadband Commission has refreshed the look of its website. The new website (www.broadbandcommission.org) has an improved look and feel, presenting the work of the Commission in a cleaner, more interactive and responsive design. 

With the integration of a user-friendly interface that allows readers to view documents before downloading, the new website is able to track each report’s views, downloads and overall impressions to help measure the impact of the Commission. With these vast improvements, the new site is set to bring a spotlight to the 10 Annual State of Broadband Reports, the more than 30 Working Group Reports and various Commissioner insights and case studies that have been compiled since its inception.
