Digital technology is having a dramatic impact on consumers around the world, creating many new benefits including better communication, access to information and greater choice and convenience. Whilst consumers undoubtedly benefit from these technologies, there are questions about how to establish access to the internet for the many consumers who are not connected, how to improve the quality of services, which online services and products consumers can trust and what happens to the data they share online. To address some of these issues and promote access, participation and innovation in digital technology Consumers International is working to create a #BetterDigitalWorld. Throughout the next year and beyond we will be working on a range of projects that will help build an online world that consumers can trust.
