What is World WiFi Day?
World WiFi Day is a global event orchestrated by the Wireless Broadband Alliance that shines a light on the many communities and cities worldwide that remain without WiFi access. WiFi is a vital service that keeps economies moving, and by working to address the digital divide, the WBA hopes to bring governments and companies together to close the gap.
What is HOPE for Connectivity?
The HOPE for Connectivity calls for action from local government and industry leaders to recognize and celebrate WiFi's role in advancing our society while helping to accelerate the availability of affordable connectivity for those who remain unconnected. There are four key themes rooted in the WBA's vision for World WiFi Day:
Help: funding WiFi deployments to connect the unconnected communities
