The State of Broadband 2015

Broadband as a Foundation for Sustainable Development

This report explores what constitutes an effective National Broadband Plan to boost the deployment of broadband and maximize its impact as a crosssectoral driver underpinning progress. It is now more important than ever that developing countries prioritize digital development in order to enhance their national competitiveness and to deliver tangible improvements in their citizens’ living standards and welfare, including closing gender gaps in access to ICTs and broadband.

Hide / Show Abstract

Every year, the UN Broadband Commission publishes its annual ‘State of Broadband’ report to take the pulse of the global broadband industry and to explore progress in connecting everyone on the planet via broadband. This year’s report finds mixed messages about the growth of ICTs and the global state of broadband. Although strong growth rates continue for mobile broadband and Facebook usage, and mobile cellular subscriptions exceeded 7 billion for the first time during 2015, growth in global mobile cellular subscriptions and growth in Internet usage have slowed sharply. We have reached a transition point in the growth of the Internet.
