Contribution : With nearly 60 percent of humanity still lacking Internet access, the success of extending universal, affordable connectivity depends on the shared expertise, experiences, and creativity of the global technology, technical, finance, policy, and user communities. Progression to connecting the unconnected will take unprecedented collaboration across industry sectors, technology domains and disciplines, generations and cultures. There is a need to continue the trend from vertical development to collaborative development, as well as to bring stakeholders together to discuss synergies and overlaps, strengthen cross-sector and discipline collaboration and identify new approaches and resources to advancing solutions.
