Announcing The Web Untangled: Our new newsletter

Web Foundation · July 11, 2019

In June, we launched The Web Untangled, a new monthly series dedicated to unpacking issues core to digital access and rights. From internet shutdowns to data privacy and beyond, in the coming months we will consider topics critical to the web, its role in our lives, and its future.

In the inaugural edition, we explored the rise of internet taxes and their impact. Digital taxes are spreading across Africa, pushing users offline and forcing access further out of reach for the millions who remain unconnected. This issue looks at how the taxes are designed and who they impact, featuring resources from Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), Pollicy, Global Voices, and more.
