The COVID-19 pandemic made clear just how important Internet connectivity is for daily life—from jobs to healthcare to education. And while the Internet helped make life during the pandemic more bearable, millions of Americans, and billions of people around the world, didn’t have access and remain offline today. So how do we close this gap once and for all? Governments around the world are looking at tackling this challenge—from building networks in remote areas to subsidizing access for low-income families. And once people are online, how do we ensure that they reap the full benefits of the digital age? What devices and training are needed to make that access worthwhile? And what roles should government, non-profits, and the private sector play in these efforts?
