On September 23, 2012, the Broadband Commission for Digital Development released “The State of Broadband 2012” report. The report evaluates the roll-out of broadband on a worldwide basis and tracks progress towards achieving the four advocacy targets set by the Commission in 2011 for boosting broadband affordability and uptake.

While the report reveals that broadband availability and use has experienced strong growth – particularly in developed economies; there remains significant gaps in parts of the world – including Africa, southern Asia and Latin America. For lagging markets, mobile broadband will likely be the technology that enables these markets to participate in the digital economy.

The report highlights the importance of public private partnerships in accelerating change, and presents twelve recommendations from the Commission to speed up the roll-out and deployment of broadband to accelerate progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
