Two villages at the base of Everest need fiber Internet. You can help them.

Together with our global community we extend the Internet’s reach and protect its long-term well-being.

We help grow the Internet.

Nearly half the world’s population isn’t connected. We are committed to closing the digital divide by bringing together the people and technology needed to give everyone the access they want.

We make the Internet stronger.

We advocate for a secure, trusted and more resilient Internet. We defend the Internet from those who could make it less secure, less resilient, and less open.

We shape the Internet of the future.

We are a global movement that champions an Internet of hope, opportunity, and celebrates humanity. But Internet access is no longer a luxury. It is a virtual lifeline. Be part of the solution.

What Is the Splinternet?

It’s where the Internet fragments into isolated networks, masquerading as the Internet you’ve come to rely on.

In these shadow versions, the free flow of information is suppressed by governments and corporations, and you can’t trust the information in front of you.

The Internet Society offered me a transformative journey of education, networking, and empowerment in the Internet and technology governance sphere. This short-term journey has shaped my entire career. I’ve gone from being a researcher on Internet governance and digital rights issues to a lifelong global activist for Internet Inclusion, digital literacy, and bridging the digital divide.
