Vital Wave authored a report for the 2014 Mobile World Congress in partnership with Qualcomm Wireless Reach and the GSMA mWomen Programme that characterizes the potential of mobile broadband to advance women’s livelihoods in the developing world. The report, Transforming Women’s Livelihoods through Mobile Broadband, combines the results of 1,000 in-depth interviews, segmentation analysis, and case studies to establish the value that mobile broadband brings to working women in the developing world. The report concludes with recommendations targeted to MNOs and equipment providers, governments, and NGOs to support growth within this segment.
