Become part of the People-Centered Internet                        

An initiative chaired by Vint Cerf

It’s time the Internet reached every corner of the globe. 

Half of all the people on the planet- 3.7 billion people have no reliable access to the Internet. The People Centered Internet is chaired by Vint Cerf. We are working closely with our partners at IEEE, the World Economic Forum, World Bank, Internet Society, NSRC and 100MLives to connect communities around the world. Let’s make sure the Internet reaches everyone.

You can help.

As a PCI Participant, not only will you be supporting a vital global movement, but you will receive regular exclusive insights from Vint Cerf and early access to PCI events. In addition to receiving critical briefings on international efforts, you will also have the opportunity to directly participate in PCI projects.

PCI’s partners include World Economic Forum, World Bank, IEEE, IFLA and the Internet Society, and we are on the World Economic Forum’s Internet For All steering committee. Together we are developing a global impact grid so we can share breakthroughs and benefits quickly, using local projects to create global learning.

Central to PCI is the selection, implementation and measurement of real-world Internet roll-out initiatives. This give us unique access to in-country data as well as global metadata from markets containing billions of new Internet users, which can be used by PCI sponsors to inform decision-making and strategic investments.

This worldwide roll-out presents an incredible window of opportunity for those involved. Those on the ground as new markets are opened up will have access to critical market intelligence and insights, and have the platform to shape how billions of people use the Internet.
