ABSTRACT

Rhizomatica’s mission is to increase access to mobile telecommunications to the over 2 billion people without affordable coverage and the 700 million with none at all. Giovanni will share his Mexican experience with us, showcasing how they managed to install a local cellular network, providing the indigenous community of Villa Talea de Castro – located in the northern mountain range of Oaxaca – with “unlimited local calls and messages, long distance and international calls at a cost of up to 98 percent less than [that] offered by other telephone service providers.”
