The UN Broadband Commission was established in 2010 as a top-level advocacy body to promote broadband as an accelerator of global development. At its 12th meeting, held on 26th September 2015 in New York, the Commission adopted a new focus on the Sustainable Development Goals. This sees the Commission enter a new phase; the newly inaugurated ITU/UNESCO Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development aims to promote the use of broadband to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. 22 new members have been drawn from a range of sectors including the global technology industry, government ministers, education and healthcare, and two additional UN bodies join existing Commissioners from ITU, UNDP, UNESCO, UN-ORHLLS, WIPO and the UN Foundation. .
