Connectivity strategies where people matter : community-led small-scale telecommunication infrastructure networks in the global south
Increasing numbers of networks are emerging where community members build and operate their own telecommunication infrastructure, often managed on a cost recovery basis, rather than for commercial gain. However, most governments are not yet aware of the potential impact of independent small-scale community-based networks. The research aimed to provide information useful for evidence-based policy making that will contribute to creating a more enabling environment for local access networks. This report details the results of the project. Initiatives studied in the research are summarized and grouped by country.
