In short, Touré would like to see the United Nations (UN) update its global digital development targets to include a commitment that would require countries around the world to ensure that everybody can access broadband internet speeds of 20Mbps (Megabits per second) from just $20 by 2020. Easier said than done, especially in poorer countries."
