Despite the rapid development of technology, about 2.7 billion of the 8 billion people living in the world today still do not have access to the Internet, depending on geographic location, lack of infrastructure, and population scarcity. And providing access requires new, non-traditional approaches.

With the support of the RA Ministry of High-Tech Industry, the co-organizers of the “European Connectivity Summit” are the Internet Society (USA) and the Union of Armenian Operators.
