Redefining inclusion

Ministerial Programme (invite only)

Date & Time

Hall 4 - Auditorium A


By 2025, GSMA Intelligence reports that six billion citizens will have mobile subscriptions; one billion more than today. But as mobile continues to bridge the social and digital divide, does the rise in subscriptions genuinely mean greater inclusion?

Differentiating between ownership and usage is vital for ensuring the newly connected receive – and use – the full content and services available to them. In this session, we re-examine our understanding of inclusion to ensure mobile reduces the digital divide in an economically viable and truly inclusive way.
