Global Broadband and Innovations Alliance

In 2010, the USAID Global Development Lab issued a 10-year cooperative agreement to NetHope with these two overarching goals:

  1. Extend the reach of broadband, including enhanced mobile networks, into more remote rural areas as key infrastructure for extending the reach of socioeconomic services through USAID’s NGO and contractor partners; and
  2. Leverage the extension of these networks for delivering network-enabled value-added application support across USAID’s development portfolio.

Envisioned as a follow-up mechanism to the Last Mile Initiative (LMI) and the Global Development Commons (GDC), the Global Broadband and Innovations Alliance (GBI) was created to help accelerate the expansion of internet access to the 71% of the global population that was still unconnected at the time.
