Half of the world’s population is still without internet connection. In support of the ITU’s Connect 2020 target of ensuring that more than 50% of people in the developing world have internet by 2020, we need to connect the unconnected. This means providing internet access to approximately 700 million new subscribers, equivalent to 500,000 new users every day - from today until 2020. This is how we can help you find sustainable and efficient ways to do it.
