Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development, established by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has pushed for more concerted global efforts to increase broadband connectivity.

According to the commission, all other digital services whether in commerce or education or healthcare run on top of broadband. The commission aims to drive innovation both in policy and business models in order to speed up the provision of broadband where it has been slowest to reach. The commission focused on global internet connectivity, vulnerable countries, epidemic preparedness, digital entrepreneurship and digital health, according to organisers.

The commission was established in 2010 with the aim of boosting the importance of broadband on the international policy agenda and expanding broadband access in every country as key to accelerating progress towards national and international development targets. The commission has set a global broadband target whereby all countries should have a funded national broadband plan or strategy by 2025.
