Connected the unconnected remains one of the great challenges of our time, even as regulatory attention grows around the world, and important work is developing, including an increasing number of new market solutions to connect all people to all parts of the Internet. This session will begin by examining the barriers to access, in an effort to increase the audience’s understanding of the problem space at the nexus of Internet access and openness. Building on that, in the second half of this discussion, we’ll explore some of the solutions that have been put forward, as well as identify what parts of the problem/solution space remain unaddressed. The intention is that in better understanding the challenges to sustainable access models as well as the landscape of current efforts, the audience will be more informed after RightsCon to pursue solutions.
