|With this Report, the Broadband Commission expands awareness and understanding of the
importance of broadband networks, services, and applications for generating economic growth and
achieving social progress. A report by the Broadband Commission, September 2012
The Broadband Commission for Digital Development promotes the adoption of broadband-friendly practices and policies for all, so everyone can take advantage of the benefits offered by broadband. The Report recognizes a clear need for policy leadership to establish a strong vision among stakeholders and prioritize the deployment of broadband at the national level. However, additional growth in access is needed to achieve the targets for individual Internet user penetration. Smartphones and mobile broadband may provide the much-needed impetus to achieve this extra growth.
