A recent debate has emerged about the contribution of broadband and related technologies to achieving development goals. The relevance of this debate is amplified by the ambitious national broadband plans set forth by governments around the world, which involve large public investments in broadband infrastructure, applications and services, as well as training.

This panel presents the results of four impact evaluation studies regarding the effect of broadband investments and adoption on key development outcomes.  This panel will also present the results of five studies that measured the development impact of broadband. 

We will also present the results an exploratory study that identified how the poor obtain, share, and utilize information and communication resources in their everyday lives – the Information Lives of the Poor.
