How can Internet access be made viable for everyone? What can stakeholders do to make true commitments, such as those in the SDGs, from public and private power holders to ensure the internet is affordable and easy to access?

In what ways can governments demonstrate commitment to ensuring an open, free and accessible Internet for all?
