Broadband Investment: Key to Digital Acceleration and Sustainable Development

November 30, 2023

The pandemic has underscored the critical importance of investing in broadband, as it has become indispensable for work, study, and social interaction. The SZV digital acceleration agenda proposes that 70% of sustainable development goals would benefit from a digital boost, with broadband serving as a foundational element. However, a gender gap in broadband availability and usage exists, necessitating attention through increased affordability, relevant content, and digital skills training.

Partnerships are vital in this endeavor, and the WBBA provides a platform for industry engagement, facilitating collaboration on investment, policy, regulatory understanding, and skills building. The industry must also embrace broader responsibilities, especially concerning the climate crisis and sustainability. The ATO contributes to this through the green digital action track, with the WBBA as a key partner. The focus extends beyond developing broadband networks to increasing responsibility within the industry. Collaboration also extends to sustainability and the green agenda.
