Every year, the ITU/UNESCO Broadband Commission for Digital Development publishes its 'State of Broadband' report to take the pulse of the global broadband industry and explore progress in broadband connectivity. This report provides a global snapshot of where the telecommunications/ICT industry stands with regards to fixed and mobile broadband deployment, affordability and usage, as well as the use of broadband for achieving development objectives, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It evaluates the take-up and development of broadband around the world, and tracks the Broadband Commission's targets. It draws on the thought leadership of the Commission and its research into National Broadband Plans. It also offers a range of perspectives on how to boost the roll-out and adoption of broadband networks and services across developing countries.

Over recent years, governments, policy-makers and regulators have made broadband a policy imperative, based on growing recognition of the impact of broadband on national goals. There is strong evidence to suggest positive benefits to broadband in greater economic growth (through productivity gains and employment), enhanced social inclusion and citizen engagement.
