The Web Foundation, the Alliance for Affordable Internet and UN Women are calling on governments to invest at least 50% of funds collected for expanding connectivity in projects targeting women’s internet access and use.
A4AI's 2017 Affordability Report examines the state of policy progress toward affordable internet across 58 low- and middle-income countries. A series of short reports offer additional insight into the progress being made by region.
Driven by the belief that affordability should not be a barrier to internet access, we use a combination of advocacy, research, and in-country engagement to develop the policies needed to reduce the cost to connect and enable everyone, everywhere to afford to come online.
Our work is focused in the low- and middle-income countries where internet costs tend to be the highest, and is led by national, in-country coalitions across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
