The Affordability Report is an in-depth annual research initiative produced by the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI). The report is part of our ongoing efforts to understand why some countries have succeeded in making Internet access more affordable, accessible and universal, and what others can do to catch up quickly.
The 2015-16 Affordability Report, released in February 2016, looks at the policy frameworks in place across 51 developing and emerging countries to determine what is working to expand access to affordable broadband. This year’s report looks particularly at how poverty and income inequality are masking the true state of affordability. What actions must policymakers take to overcome these barriers to access and make affordable, universal access a reality?
