The State of Mobile Internet Connectivity Report 2023


By the end of 2022, 4.6 billion people were using mobileinternet – an increase of 200 million since the end of 2021. However, this represents a slowdown in the rate of growth and the ‘usage gap’ remains large at 3 billion people. It is critical that we understand the challenges to digitalinclusion and what can be done to drive further progress and avoid leaving people behind in an increasingly digital world. 

In this session, co-authors Matthew Shanahan and Kalvin Bahia will share the key findings from this year's report, followed by fireside discussions with experts from 2 MNOs, moderated by Claire Sibthorpe, Head of Connected Society and Connected Women at the GSMA. 

Join us to learn more about the evolving connectivity landscape in low- and middle-income countries, the barriers people face to using mobile internet and what factors affect this.
