Internet universality indicators: Responses from the first online consultation

The Internet Universality Indicators have been developed through two phases of consultation.


The first phase of consultation was concerned with the broad themes of Internet Universality and the ways in which they might be encapsulated in an indicator framework. An online consultation platform, in the six official UN languages, was launched at the WSIS Forum on 14 June 2017 and remained open until 31 October 2017. This attracted 198 contributions. This first phase of work enabled the preparation of a draft indicator framework and set of indicators which were set out in the document Defining Internet Universality Indicators, published online and offline in December 2017.
