Thank you, Arjuna.

 

Do folks have an alternate name for “case-study” so that we can agree on what data tools we want to use for the outline that Leandro is working on (and that we’ll help him hack)?

 

Part of our objective is to provide concrete examples where changes are being made to business models for connectivity, funding for same, and where regulators/policy-makers are changing the game by creating/removing barriers for new access models.


We are seeing changes around the world to accommodate change as some of the old biz models are not providing connectivity (ROI not made and licensing conditions not met) or affordable connectivity to rural, remote, and underserved areas.  

 

Best,

Jane

Hi everyone,  

 

In the recent days I’ve seen several initiatives around fibre access infrastructure, 

 

* Some coming from rural communities such as:

 - this nice video documentary from a community effort in Scotland: https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2018/09/video-documentary-looks-at-balquhidder-community-ftth-build-in-scotland.html 

 - The well know B4RN community operator: https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2018/03/b4rn-helping-expand-1gbps-ftth-broadband-rural-cheshire.html 

 - Several other optical networks: https://ec.europa..eu/digital-single-market/en/news/five-projects-got-first-ever-european-broadband-award

 - Including guifi.net: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD3HYeD4Lm4

 - First nations such as http://knet.ca/ among others: https://www.internetsociety.org/events/indigenous-connectivity-summit/2017/presentations/ and related aspects of electricity, water, economic development and employment, etc.

 

* Traditional or new telcos such as https://www.gigaclear.com/ etc.

 

* Other players such as google fibre: https://fiber.googleblog.com/ In this article they discuss about lessons learned https://hbr.org/2018/09/why-google-fiber-is-high-speed-internets-most-successful-failure

 

The list is endless.

 

All seem successful in different ways, with different lessons learned about scale, local investment, infrastructure sharing like ducts and poles, cost reduction from the involvement of volunteers, involvement of content and service providers (googlefiber), etc. In the netcommons.eu project we have looked at different business and organisational models for community networks specifically, but there are other successful models that have socio-economic impact.

 

Would you find useful to compile a GAIA/IRTF document about good practices, lessons learned, to build high-speed/fibre/gigabit network infrastructures in challenging environments? which means beyond the last frontier of rural, remote, underdeveloped, underserved areas.

 

By the way, there is this upcoming related event: https://www.internetsociety.org/events/indigenous-connectivity-summit/2018/

The report from the previous edition is a recommended read: https://www.internetsociety.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/2018-01-04_ICS-Report-final.pdf
