World Wi-fi Day: Connecting the Unconnected

World Wi-fi Day: Connecting the Unconnected

posted in Redstor ● 23 Jan 2015

We live in a rapidly evolving digital world and technology is a major part of everyday life for many of us, we use technology at work, in school and for learning and in our personal lives. However, for those who live in rural, remote or impoverished areas, staying connected is a challenging task. World Wi-fi Day is global initiative set up to help bridge the digital divide and make the internet affordable and accessible to all.

Some of the organizations who have stepped forward in support include Huawei, BT and Intel.

Lack of spending power, lack of available technology and lack of IT literacy levels are also a factor.

In 2017, there is estimated to be 9 billion internet-enabled devices in use with 3 billion being shipped in a single year. The mobile technology industry was worth an estimated $3.3 trillion in 2016. With such staggering statistics around mobile and internet usage, it is vital for consumers and organizations alike to protect digital assets and devices. Data management and protection is best practice for all and should include, managing the lifecycle of data and having an up to date backup
