In 2023, global mobile broadband costs decreased to 1.3% of GNI per capita. However, this progress contrasts sharply with the enduring affordability gap in low-income regions, where mobile broadband is over 20 times less affordable than in wealthier areas.

Achieving the United Nations' 2025 affordability goal is challenging, as many low- and middle-income nations remain above this target. This highlights the persistent struggle for equitable internet access.

Innovative initiatives like Not2Far are crucial. They're making strides in delivering sustainable, high-speed internet to isolated communities, significantly reducing the digital divide by offering affordable connectivity to the most underserved populations.
