Welcome to the Affordability Report – an in-depth annual research initiative produced by the Alliance for Affordable Internet. The report represents part of our ongoing efforts to measure policy progress toward affordable internet.

The 2020 Affordability Report, released in December 2020, calls for governments to develop effective national broadband plans to make internet access more affordable and enable more people to connect. We focus on three steps to success when it comes to broadband plans: open consultations, clear targets, and committed funding.

You’re invited: join us for a webinar to learn more!

Please join us for a webinar tailored to your region to learn more about the report’s highlights, findings, and recommendations on how to overcome the barriers of internet affordability through effective broadband planning.
