Technological advances – from broadcasting and TV to mobile phones and the Internet – have transformed the world. For many people, it's hard to imagine what life would be like without easy, efficient ICT services. While many of us enjoy the infinite opportunities and convenient services made possible by ICT, there are billions more who are left behind for one reason or another. ICT advances have created a huge digital divide for the unconnected.As a key ICT player committed to building a Better Connected World, Huawei provides infrastructure, equipment, solutions, and expertise to enable Internet access and bridge the digital divide. We aim to connect the unconnected, develop the necessary ICT talent and skills to leverage the potential of new technologies, and deliver solutions that create value for users and enrich their lives. ICT has considerable potential to increase efficiency and productivity and improve health and education. Huawei will unlock the potential of ICT to contribute even more to the information society.

The White Paper identifies key barriers to digital enablement, challenges implementing solutions, and provides practical recommendations and tools as well as many examples from around the world.
