Connect a post, connect a community is an initiative of the UPU to connect every post office to the Internet by 2030, to bring meaningful digital inclusion of businesses and citizens in the communities they serve. 

According to UPU estimates, there are over 650,000 post offices worldwide and more than 100,000 remain unconnected. The postal network offers a unique critical national infrastructure to provide meaningful connectivity and bridge the digital divide in unconnected communities. Connected Posts provide essential government, commerce and financial services for sustainable and inclusive development in the digital economy.

This initiative has been developed in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the UN Common Agenda, and with the support of Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications:

"UPU aims to bridge digital and physical divides and foster the socio-economic development of the communities served by Posts."
''India Post networked its 155,000 post offices and enabled them to become a single point of all government retail services.''
