Licensing and Shared Spectrum Framework for Community Networks for Kenya online discussion

The same is replicated across the globe. Many people are of the notion that
when we talk about developed countries or areas then we mean connectivity
is 100%! This is farthest from reality. We need CNs across the globe to
reach the unconnected… these are what may be termed as difficult to
connect people; the people ISPs won’t touch as doesn’t impact their bottom
line positively YET when we look at the SOCIAL PROFITS that can be derived
from a forgotten community getting connected… availing telehealth care,
on demand lessons, live classes… The social dividends are immeasurable!
