These days, it is not enough to know whether an individual has been online or offline in the past 30 days, but rather, whether they enjoy meaningful connectivity to the Internet. With Ana Maria Rodriguez and Yacine Khelladi, both from the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), we discuss, among other things:

  • the ‘Meaningful Connectivity’ targets A4AI has proposed:
  • whether the proposed targets have been set too low or too high; and
  • some of the challenges countries and individuals might experience in trying to achieve those targets.
