The internet connects people and societies. It's the backbone of our global economy. And it helps shape and share ideas that change our world. Ultimately, it transforms people's quality of life.
But while many of us take the internet for granted, not everyone can. In fact, roughly 4.6 billion people around the world don't have access to the internet - and more than one in ten people in the UK have never been online.
We have a vision for a Connected Society: to help improve society globally through the power of digital connections. In the UK our goal is that by 2020, more than nine out of ten people will have access to fibre based products and services.
And everyone should share in the benefits. Alongside providing access, we want to help people - right around the world - gain the skills and confidence they need to join the online community.
