Inclusive infrastructure for sustainable development

SDG: 09 - Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure

The link between broadband access and socio-economic development has been examined from a variety of approaches. However, most approaches do not incorporate consideration of the delivered broadband quality as experienced at the consumer level. Because the quality and performance of internet connectivity varies greatly based on local conditions, a robust analytical approach should incorporate these nuances into research exercises. This research activity draws upon large-scale user data to derive industry standard indicators, such as jitter, lag, packet loss and delivered speeds. These indicators enable the researcher to draw up on this quantitative data to gain a more detailed picture of ICT connectivity, which enhances the accuracy of analytical exercises.
