Descripción

At this panel discussion and workshop, the GSMA Connected Society team will convene the industry: mobile operators, technology firms, governments and development organisations to explore some of the key drivers of mobile internet adoption: handset affordability, digital literacy and relevant content and services.

The session aims to disseminate recent research findings and initiatives carried out in these areas by Milicom, Google, ResearchICT and Wikipedia, as well as the GSMA. The aim is to get attendees to discuss the viability of these models and to drive collaboration between mobile operators and other stakeholders.
