Annual Year in Review

In 2022, the Broadband Commission continued its call to world leaders, heads of industry, and civil society, to put connectivity at the forefront of their efforts to ensure meaningful connectivity that is affordable, accessible, and tailored to the use of diverse global communities.

This year the Commission released consensus-driven publications, along with several inputs to global events and activities, all with actionable recommendations for stakeholders to advance progress on reaching universal connectivity.
