Annual report of the UN IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity
Over four billion people are currently unconnected to the Internet, including around a billion individuals who do not have access to basic telephony services. Community networks are a subset of crowdsourced networks, structured to be open, free, and neutral. This Report explores several dimensions of the community network debate. The Report and the Declaration on Community Connectivity are the official outcomes produced by the DC3 in 2016. The Report includes a selection of analyses of different community connectivity issues. Submissions have been evaluated for their novelty and undertook a blind peer-review process.
