A4AI publishes COVID-19 Internet access and affordability policy brief

The Alliance for Accountable Internet (A4AI) has in a policy brief made recommendations to various stakeholders on steps that can be taken to ensure that as many people as possible have access to the Internet during the COVID-19 pandemic. The brief highlighted shocking inequalities  COVID-19 helped expose when it came to Internet access and affordability across the globe.  It additionally called on governments, companies, public-private partnerships and the civil society to immediately take specific measures  in addressing Internet connectivity concerns.

A4AI based its recommendation on their ​Good Practices in Policy and Regulation,​ as well as the Contract for the Web​ — a global plan of action launched by the Web Foundation in 2019.
