The consumer in today's digital world depends on
communications networks such as the Internet, and the ability to
access and share knowledge across those networks. The consumer
movement has an important role in ensuring that such networks and
the works exchanged across them are accessible, affordable,
reliable and safe.
Consumers International's (CI) work on broadband service provision and access to
knowledge (A2K) are designed to further these goals, through
global campaigning for fairer laws and practices and holding
industry players to account. We also undertake media
capacity building initiatives with our members to help raise
consumer rights awareness, and we are also exploring the power
media tools in Latin America to promote consumer activism.
