2018 Affordability Report

2018 marks the fifth annual edition of the A4AI Affordability Report. In the past five years, we’ve seen issues around internet access and affordability step into the spotlight, and have seen a growing number of countries acknowledge the need to put digital strategies at the heart of their plans for development and economic growth.

Despite this progress, the past five years have also seen a serious slowdown in the rate at which people are coming online. Inability to afford a basic internet connection remains one of the most significant — and solvable — barriers to access. Around the world, over two billion people live in a country where just 1GB of mobile data is unaffordable. The 2018 Affordability Report examines how the policies to accelerate access to affordable internet have progressed these past five years across 61 lowand middle-income countries, and where they stand today.
