Networking for the Unexpected: Building resilience and innovation with Village Telco by Steve Song
What are the desirable qualities in a communication network? Affordability, ubiquity, reliability, privacy, convenience. In the developing world, mobile networks are delivering telephony and broadband where it has never gone before but often at the expense of the above qualities. Village Telco, an Open Source, DIY, telco-in-a-box puts the power of telephone and broadband infrastructure in local hands and offers a complementary alternative network to conventional telecommunications services.
