In the Internet 2.0 world, there has been much discussion of the digital divide, limited rural broadband access, and limited funding, but solutions have proven to be elusive. How are the challenges with equity as the Internet evolves? This IGF-USA session will focus on local challenges in Internet access, adoption, and affordability and how they affect community outcomes. The goals of this session are to improve our understanding of meaningful access, where the gaps exist, why they exist, and how to best address these needs.
