Internet We use the internet to keep in touch with friends and family, to shop and to obtain information. We use apps to control our home, communicate with authorities and doctors, book train tickets and look for parking spots. Stable internet access is important for each one of us – but it is also a critical factor for the future viability of entire regions. In expanding our network, we are therefore also helping to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs). Nationwide internet access is an important element in a sustainable infrastructure (SDG 9). It can help create new jobs, for instance, through more company start-ups (SDG 8). Network expansion also lays the foundation for many other positive effects, such as improved access to online educational offerings (SDG 4), more sustainable agriculture (SDG 15) and improved healthcare (SDG 3). The internet is also the basis for solutions that save energy and reduce CO2 (SDG 13) or improve life in cities (SDG 11).
