Broadband is an investment in people

From the Broadband Commission for Digital Development’s report calling for leadership in developing broadband for all:

Investing in broadband is not necessarily an investment in infrastructure, but rather an investment in people. For broadband is really an investment in an interconnected world of ideas and knowledge that can be spread in seconds from one corner of the earth to another — the “meeting and mating of ideas to make new ideas.” And investing in people and their ideas to solve their own problems contributes more to empowering those people and making progress in the global development agenda than virtually anything else policy-makers can do.
