Meaningful access to communications and connectivity has never been more important. However, many rural and indigenous people around the world are unable to access the online world and are therefore left out of the benefits of connectivity such as economic development, access to information and emergency response. Since 2015, TIC has developed an innovative approach that combines open-source technology, community participation and ownership and regulatory advocacy, which has brought thousands of people cellular service in previously uncovered places. This network is now looking to provide 4G/LTE services paired with a novel local content sharing platform, allowing community users to get the most out of their online experience.
