Open for debate – Connecting the unconnected has nothing to do with coverage

Register: Friday, 16 October – 11:00 – 12:00 BST 

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the value of connectivity is clearer than ever.
To that end, there has been a focus on extending network reach and coverage. But is that really the solution?

In this new MWL Themed Week panel, experts from GSMA Intelligence and GSMA Connected Society discuss the obstacles standing in the way of closing the digital divide, beyond coverage.

Speakers will leverage key findings from the State of Mobile Internet Connectivity 2020 report to discuss the main barriers that remain to universal mobile internet adoption, from device affordability to policy, literacy and gender.

Our Speakers:

  • Claire Sibthorpe, Head of Connected Women, Connected Society and Assistive Tech, GSMA
  • Kalvin Bahia, Principal Economist, GSMA Intelligence
  • Peter Jarich, Head of GSMA Intelligence

Register: Friday, 16 October – 11:00 – 12:00 BST
