Connectivity

The development of information and communications technology (ICT) in the Asian and Pacific region continues at a high rate, catching most developed regions of the world. Today, more than half of the mobilecellular subscriptions in the world are located in the region. The ubiquity of mobile telephones and affordable communications contributes to the empowerment of previously marginalized and poor people through an increase in people-to-people connectivity and a facilitated exchange of knowledge. However, even though more people are now online, thanks to the rapid uptake in mobilebroadband technology, large disparities in terms of ICT access and use continue to exist in the region.
